9. Best Human Connection
Jonas was the site foreman at the Methodist Church’s reconstruction project in Leveque, Haiti. It was a blessing to live, work, play, worship, and be in community with him.

10. Best Kept Southern Secret
Add baking soda to freshly brewed tea to prevent bitter taste. Works like a charm. Every. Single. Time.

Salty Watermelon (Fresh Watermelon Puree + Vodka + a splash of the sea)
