When Life Gives You Lemons, Plant a Lemon Tree!

So, lemons are my obsession. It might be the one thing that I always have in my house! It's very weird but I never use to drink water, it wouldn't go beyond 2 sips because it just makes me nauseous, I just don't like the taste. So, I decided that it was very crucial and I needed to start drinking water. I started experimenting, making all sorts of flavored waters. I added strawberries, oranges, and they did taste great but then I realized all I needed was lemon! Now, I drink water all the time, I cut a lemon in half and just squeeze it into my water bottle, I prefer to drink water is a bottle, why? I'm just weird.  If you want you can spice things up and make it fancy. Slice some lemons, add a cucumber, throw in some mint or basil, whichever is your preference and VOILA! Delicious and eye pleasing water!

Considering my lemon obsession, it wouldn't be any surprise that I fell in love with the potted lemon trees I first saw in a mall in Istanbul! They were used as decor for the mall and those lemon trees seriously changed the whole feel of the malls lounge area. I then started seeing them in other places and now I have to buy myself a lemon tree. Luckily here they sell them potted, so I can just pick it up and transfer it to a cute pot. We live on the top floor of our apartment so we have an amazing terrace that I am still working on. I will do a Before and After post once I am done with it. I'll have to wait till March to do anything since it'll be a long and dreadful winter!
