Happy National Watermelon Day

August 3, 2011 § Leave a comment

I saw a woman carrying a watermelon to her car the other day and the first thing I thought of was the scene from Dirty Dancing when Jennifer Grey (Baby) says, “I carried a watermelon.” I know; I’m a nerd.

I carried a watermelon.

Nerdyness aside, I *heart* watermelon. From the sweet juice to the crisp crunch, every bite reminds me why watermelon is the quintessential icon of summer. In celebration of National Watermelon Day (August 3), I toured around a bunch of websites to find some fun watermelon inspiration to share here. Enjoy!
