The community where I grew up is pretty amazing. There is a big group of friends, who met through their kids, and they have impromptu get-togethers every once in a while. Now that the kids are grown up for the most part, it is always so exciting when everyone is home, and the parents and kids hang out together. Brian and I came back late from his family’s house, so when we got to my house I felt like we just walked in to this big, happy family gathering. Hugs and kisses and “how’s married life?”s. I feel so lucky to have this group of people in my life who have known me forever.
It doesn’t hurt that my mom is an amazing hostess and puts together a pretty awesome (and beautiful, might I add) spread of food. Complete with candles and wine, I think you’ve got a recipe for the perfect evening.
Hope your weekend is full of cozy get-togethers!
