And did you notice the burlap and blue bottles as centerpieces? Remind you of anything? I couldn't believe how positively trendy I had been, all on my own! I assure you, it was a fluke.
It was a beautiful weekend, visiting with family- and even my parents. Since they have plenty of young children still and many with 'issues' and I have almost a handful myself- quality time is at a minimum even when we do visit with one another. It was a sweet, sweet time. Not having the children all about was very odd at times- especially when I had no plates to serve up at dinner except my own and on Sunday, when I had no knees to squeeze or stinkeyes to glare during the sermon.
It was a relaxing and beautiful weekend- but I am glad to be back among the loud, messy and chaotic of my own Home Sweet Home.
