Maternity leave is awesome! It's so crazy not working, you get to do more things. We got to spend a week in St. Louis. Jason had a work trip in Kansas City so he dropped off the kids and me at his parent's house. We enjoyed beautiful fall weather and colors, good food as always, long walks, and plain old relaxation. While we were there I rediscovered my love for friendship tea. I think I drank more of this tea than coffee. I loved it so much my mom found the recipe and I made some for myself (and a few others). It's so easy and it makes a great gift. You could decorate the jars with fabric, cute labels and twine. I didn't have the time or the stuff to do this but maybe for Christmas I will?! That might be wishful thinking but we'll see!
Here's the tea in a cute mug.....see recipe below and enjoy some other snapshots of fall!
We've done so much driving lately....these two are so good in the car.
1 tang mix
1 lemonade mix
1 unsweetened ice tea mix
( I used the whole containers for all three of the mixes)
1 cup sugar
3 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
Stir all together and put in jars. When making tea use 3 tsp of mix for one cup of hot water.
