Every day should begin with hot air balloons cresting the ridge next to my house. They should then progress into strawberry cake walks for noble causes, transition into birthday parties for one year olds (lucky enough to have such talented and crafty mommas), and culminate with impromptu thai food dinner parties lovingly cooked by splendid husbands (like my G.) for eight friends and their collective 4 children. That’s how my Saturday went and it was magnificent.
I mentioned last weekend that I’d be heading out to the 3rd class in the 4-part series on organic gardening I’m taking at Red Wing Farm. What a delight it is to visit Beth and Christopher’s place. I always feel like I’ve been transported to the south of France, where most meals are taken outdoors, trees sway languidly in gentle breezes, everything grows in such lush abundance that it’s almost scandalous, and wildlife abounds.
Happy Friday, everyone! My “Small Measures with Ashley” post is up on Design Sponge. Today’s topic discusses the ecological impact made possible through the seemingly radical concept (nowadays) of eating in.
