It all started with this pink rose...
...the first rose from our garden.
I decided that life is just simply too short to not eat outdoors at a pretty table...with fresh flowers and placemats...the "good" china...and matching napkins.
Then why do I usually just slap down the first plates I see (aka...hideous scratched $0.50 IKEA junkers)....use the paper towel sheets for napkins...and bring out the ugly plastic water bottle to the table?
Let me tell you...there is something wonderful about sitting down to a well-set table.
There just is.
Even my boys loved it.
And yes....I am nerdy enough to bring out my new pink rose painting just because it matches. :)
We were giggling here because Toby said "Where's my 'meef'?" ...as in a cross between beef and meat?
and a picture of my little Finny, just because...
Oh how I love summer. Well....spring.....but it kind of just felt like summer.
