A Time Of Peace

Last week I hosted a small dinner party for a few girlfriends.
It was quiet, expect when full of adult chatter, restful, full of foods we love but kids don't, had a white table cloth and fancy dishes.  Yes, we love our kids but these few hours - they were nice.  The next party is already on the calendar for next month.  This is certainly something we can get used to.

Great idea. I use to do lunches twice a month. The kids would be there but it n the summer we would be outside. For me, it was a sanity saver. We did not have a second car and I could not go anywhere. But mine were not fancy like yours. Beautiful table.
