During the fall break, we hightailed it down to South Carolina to visit Myrtle Beach, Charleston and many points in-between. Along the way we also stopped by to visit one of my dearest friends, one I haven't seen in over a decade. L, her family and her friends, welcomed us into their homes with open arms, full of that charming hospitality that the South is so known for.
Lately, I've been missing hanging out with L, we had such a good time. We picked right back up where we left off all those years ago. Good friends are like that, you never skip a beat. And I've also been missing being on the water. Myrtle Beach is fun, even in the off-season. And I've been missing the warm breezes, who wouldn't with this winter weather we've been having? And I'm missing the beauty of Charleston...and another thing I've been missing/longing for from there, what with all this cold and snowy weather that will not leave the Midwest, is some tea. But not the hot English tea that I normally drink, but some iced Southern Sweet Tea. At least I can make it following this recipe for Southern Sweet Tea and pretend I'm back down south for awhile. Luckily for me, I brought home some of the tea that they grow down on a tea plantation, not too far from Charleston, South Carolina. So, even though here it's snowy outside...when I look back through my pictures, I can still feel the breezes and the warmth of my first visit to South Carolina. Now it's time to turn up the heat, put on my shades, make some iced Southern Sweet Tea and pretend I'm back in SC, hanging with L. :)
