Sweet Summer Afternoon

sweet summer afternoon
Being from Texas, iced tea was a year-round drink for our family. 
But in the summertime, we would pick spearmint from the little bush that grew under mama’s kitchen window, slice a fresh lime, and mix it into tall glasses of sweet iced tea.
Mmmmm….sweet summer afternoons.
