I’m super happy to say that my fam and I took a much-needed beach vacay to Hilton Head Island last week! I so, so, SO needed that 🙂

Iced Tea in a Mason Jar

Iced tea in a Mason Jar… reminds me of my dinners at my grandma’s 🙂

Confession: At the risk of having my Southerner Card revoked, I admit that, while I can (and do) drink hot tea all day long, I do not like iced tea. At all. Needless to say, I didn’t order this one. It’s pretty, though.

I promise I didn’t yell, “Hey, Lifeguard!” He just happened to turn around as I was taking the pic.

  1. I love Hilton Head! And I don’t like iced tea either so you’re in good company with that!

      Glad to know it’s not just me! I have a few other confessions that might but my Southerner Card at risk, but I might keep those to myself, lol.

  2. Giving you and V a side eye about disliking iced sweet tea. Thanks for sharing your vacay pics!

    • Joy and Sunshine says:

      Oh no! Not the dreaded side eye! (Dodging and ducking). It’s just something about it I don’t love… I’d rather have water or even just the ice 🙂
