Eating and Gathering
Our favorite thing to do this summer has been, eating outside under the apple tree. We set a table with one of my vintage table cloths, and hang the paper lanterns (that are left over from our wedding decor-- almost 5 years ago)!
And after Eric's Birthday party in July, I made a goal to eat outside at least once a week for the rest of the summer. It makes dinner seem so special!
And we’ve had dinner, dessert and a party. The kids love this little adventure, a diversion from the ordinary. And we’re literally right a few steps away from our kitchen table, but since we’re outside the magic of summer is so evident. The night light is fading, but so subtly and softly.
What have you been enjoying this summer?
