Drink Recipe Knock-Off {Bread & Company}

The first time I ever visited Nashville, I recall having lunch at Bread and Company. After I graduated from UK several years later, I took a job, and moved to the Music City. I definitely enjoyed many lovely lunches there eating lots of yummy bread, chicken salad, and always (always) a glass of fruit tea.
Their fruit tea is sweet tea with a punch of sour and spice. It is definitely different, but so very delicious!!
& so

I decided to make my own concoction and came up with this tasty recipe:
{from the Bread & Co online menu}
Fruit Tea Recipe
2 Family Sized Iced Tea bags (or 4-6 regular sized tea bags)
1 Peppermint tea bag
1 can frozen Welch's Pineapple, Apple, Orange Juice
2 quart pitcher

1.Bring a medium sized pot of water to a boil (about 6 cups). Place the Iced Tea bags along with the  peppermint in the pot. Take off the burner for the tea bags to seep (*can be made in an Ice Tea Maker or you can use an electric water heater).

2. and then pour into a pitcher and fill with water until about 1.5 quarters full (keep the bags in to continue steeping). Once the water has become lukewarm, take the tea bags out.

3. Add in the can of frozen juice and mix together.

4. Fill a glass with ice and the tea- Enjoy!!! It's the perfect tea for summer & fall!!

Airstream Anniversary

We had a wonderful beach vacation in celebration of 
Our 1st Anniversary!!!
and ALL I want to do is go back

To this.......

Seriously? How awesome does that look?!

Matt and I had such a fun time just being together-
relaxing, beaching, reading, napping, cooking, shopping, and having fun!!

Welcome to Tybee Island!! Hooray!
We spent a week at the River's End Campground & RV Park

Our Campsite 
Loved that we were secluded and not right next to anyone

I brought along a mason jar of Zinnias :)

Our first night's dinner- Tacos!

My sweetheart makes the best breakfast(s)!!!

We visited downtown Savannah, GA 

The Pink House

my absolute favorite store 

Store that sold items made from students at the 
Savannah College of Art and Design

A Kentucky original soda
One of my favorites that we brought to the beach

Displaying our Reefs :)

Every morning we went to the beach- a mere 2 block walk
 I would search for awesome seashells 

Beautiful sunset while Matt did some fishing

Tybee Island Lighthouse
which was a very short walk from our campground

Our last night's (yummy) dinner at
A-J's Dockside Restaurant

He is SO handsome!!

Having to say good-bye :(

We had such a wonderful time and I cannot believe that a year
has already gone by!! This year has been such a blessing being 
married to such an amazing husband!! 
Love you!

 A Big Thanks 
to Mama & Dad Pepin 
for allowing us to borrow the Airstream!!!
