About Lemon-aid: Our love-and-not-love story with fruit and vegetable water—and how we’re better at managing sugar addiction because of it
How we are managing our addiction to soda and recreational sugar with fruit and vegetable water infusion – this refreshingly odd (mostly) and tell-all true story is an account of how a frantically busy and (admittedly) overwhelmed couple learned to become better versions of themselves by changing their family’s relationship with what they drink.
It’s also a how-to guide for others who are looking to break up with sweetened beverages, beat a soda addiction, or otherwise turbo-boost a journey toward building better habits without turning their lives upside down—complete with stories, swear words, and side quests to help you get over your challenges of healthier hydration.

What we are is simply THIS: flawed, struggling, and sometimes barely holding on. We have our rough days just like everyone else. But we’re learning and working hard and have our shiny ones too! And it’s these bright days that continue to get us here, and the not-so-bright ones that help us treasure it.
One could also say we’re an unfinished manuscript, still drafting AS we’re telling our story.
“When they’re not creating memories with their two cosmic sons and a female mustached dog named Chopper, Joey and Simona are co-founding partners running The Pacer Company, a consulting and training company based outside of the US. Eventually, they will once again call Southern California their home, where they plan to continue exploring and developing further opportunities for business, writing, and their family.” There, how’s that? Not too bad, we’d say—simple and straight, and the truth.
