My daughter, who is almost 5, just finished a week of Princess Camp. Yes, princess camp. It might just be the cutest thing in the world. Four days of singing, dancing, and learning about friendship, manners, and etiquette. On the last day, they had a royal coronation where each girl went on stage, received her crown and said what her favorite part of princess camp was.

There was a stuffed cat in the foyer of the business that I’m pretty sure once walked and meowed, but other than that, princess camp was totally legit and so stinking adorable. She had a blast making crafts, meeting new friends, and being oh-so-girly.

There should be a princess camp for adults. But just with massages, pedicures, and wine. 

Or infused water like this cantaloupe water. (Originally dubbed Cameloupe Water by Door to Door Organics and the Detroit Zoo – read about why in Wednesday’s post about wild rice patties.)

This water just screams a day at the spa, doesn’t it? Or a poolside play date? It’s perfect for most anything and it really couldn’t be any easier to make.

All you need is water (obviously), cantaloupe, and cucumbers. It’s ready to drink immediately after making but the flavors intensity over time.

The good news is, there’s still a little summer left. So make some of this water and pretend you’re a princess.
