Mid Summer Fun

Good Afternoon Friends, I have to say that this week is going to be so busy, my posts might be late or miss a day. Firstly though, I want to share about a Summer Fun get together we had Saturday afternoon. We had initially planned on a big Open House party in June, but somehow that month came and went with no party. Instead of having a huge party, which would mean hours of work and prep we decided to have two smaller gatherings. We didn't want a house warming party, because heaven knows we have almost all we need. So on Saturday afternoon we had three couples over; two live on our old street-one is Kam and her hubby and another couple. The third couple we've gotten to know are locals as well, all three go to my church. It was such fun!!! We laughed at stories being told and talked of trips and snow shoeing. Here is the spread we had; wantedit simple with just  finger foods and it was perfect.


Below you will see the incredible flower arrangement and jar that Kam and Mark brought. Thank you my friend! It was so thoughtful and still looks as fresh as it did Saturday.

In a couple of weeks, we will have hubby's golf buddies and their wives over for an afternoon. It is nice that we have plenty of room to spread out. The rest of the week will be filled with packing the last bit of household belongings for my daughter and her family. They rent a truck with a couple of trailers on Wednesday morning and we will pack them up. The family and their pups will be here for two nights, until they take possession of their new home. Life and laughter will overflow here; it will be such fun. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and that your week will be easy and smooth.


  1. Mom Kim here - what a lovely spread you did have and it all looks delish. Sounds like the get together had a fun time and that flower arrangment is gorgeous - I love those kinds of flowers because they do tend to stay fresher, longer.

  2. I prefer small group gatherings, I feel you can visit with everyone that way. So glad it worked out well.

  3. Boy that sure looks pretty

  4. The smaller groups sounds like way more fun as you spend more time with your guests. Good luck with the last of the moving. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly
