The 12 soaps of Christmas: Day 7

Summer Block Party 5

When I think of summer on Emmet Street, I think of sitting on the front porch chatting with the neighbors, running barefoot in the grass, catching lightning bugs and neighborhood block parties. Those parties were a blast—we got to stay up late, sneak sips of Dad’s beer and listen to the raucous banjo playing that broke out as the evening wore on.

No summer block party was without food. Platters of burgers, freshly cut melon and other bounty fresh from our gardens made it to the picnic table.

With just one whiff, Emmet Street Creations’ Summer Block Party soap, with its fresh cucumber, melon and pear scent takes me back to those lazy summer days.
