Creepin' in ...

the holidays that is!!

And I know I am not thinking straight ... but I'd love to do Thanksgiving outside.  Something about it seems like a perfect way to celebrate our family.


Yes, I live in New England ... I didn't say I was actually going to be able to make this happen! 

 I also need a large tree to hang lanterns.
A girl can dream ... yes?
Like this ... I have no idea how we'd look or feel tromping out to the field for our meal and then the clean up would suck.  But seriously ... if you could just sit here for a couple of hours and there could be someone filling wine glasses and sweeping away all the aftermath ... 

I think you would like it too!

I am beginning to think about how we are going to handle it this year ... the kids are getting bigger and I love having us all at one table.  We seem to be out of the "kid table" age.
I am still trying to figure out the best seating ... I have brought up tables and put them together to create on large one.  It works ... but this is the time of year I wish I had an enormous dining room to house about 20 comfortably.  

Are you starting to think about this?  How do you handle everyone?  Needing some creative inspiration!

Wishing you ...

A Happy Fourth of July and a kick off to a 
Seersucker Summer!!

Summer seems to get shorter and shorter as the kids get older.  College schedules cut things short ... so I may be blogging a little less this month as I am Loving every minute of my family this July!

Thanks so much for continuing to check in and comment.  You truly make my Days!

Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day from New Hampshire ... where Don and I spent the weekend with his parents and sister and her husband celebrating Don's Mom's retirement.  A day of golf, lots of laughter, lobsters and steamers and beautiful weather!

Hope you are enjoying yours!
