To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

ALFRESCO DINING.....ENJOY THE SPRINGTIME
Sometimes words can stand out in your memory.
The word "celebrate" defines for me a joyful occasion to mark some happy event...
those special times in your life that may mean marking a triumph,
a bit of success someone you love experiences or just a reason for togetherness.
I love planning dining experiences out of doors.
The food tastes better, people are more relaxed and the conversations flow easily.
There is not a place I would rather be than in the kitchen
creating memories of wonderful dishes.
I can remember my sister and I giving tea parties for our friends
trying to imitate our mother and the beautiful table settings she created.
The Divine Miss M carried on this girly imaginary play when she was a little girl.
Springtime is a time for worldly renewal.
It's also a time for spiritual renewal as our thoughts turn to Easter and
where everything is reborn.
April showers bring......parties!
Springtime themes will set the stage for making you a most beautiful hostess!
