How to Make a Pencil Vase

My girls start back to school tomorrow!?

I’m sure that I’m not the only mom in America saying this:

“Where did the summer go?!”

I’m not ready for my girls to be gone all day every day. 🙁

I offer to homeschool them every year…but never have any takers. They love their schools and their friends!

So with the start of school, my Southern friends decided to get together to share some of our ideas for

Back To School!

One tradition we have at our house is to start each school year with a simple gift for their teacher.

I usually don’t have much time between the school supply shopping, last minute back to school parties and trips to the pool!

So here is a simple gift that can be put together is less than 5 minutes!

Lime Simple Syrup

If you are hopping over from Top This Top That, I am so glad that you are here!

I was raised on sweet tea.

My mama was putting it in my thermos for lunch by the time I was in the 1st grade.

No Kool-aid at my house…

…my friends wanted my mama’s sweet tea!

In the summer, she would hang little gold mugs from hooks under the cabinets so that we could come in and fix it ourselves.

Sweet memories. 🙂

So when my Southern friends wanted to get together and share drink recipes…

…I knew mine had to involve sweet tea!

So here is a fun lime simple syrup that will sweeten your tea while adding a hint of flavor.
