Tonight was my favorite kind of night

Tonight, I made breakfast for dinner. eggs & toast. Reese helped make a really good salad and when we sat down to eat, she insisted that she only made it for me & Josh. I still put some on her plate and she ate it. We moved the table that I had in the craft room (serving as my laundry table-aka as the place to put clean laundry that needs to be folded). We put it on our back patio, put an orange tablecloth on it, set the table with silverware & plates and poured some lemon Italian soda in our glasses. This was our first dinner outside this summer and we loved it.

Then we put the food away and decided to go for a walk. There is a neighborhood close to ours that is full of beautiful Mid-Century Modern ranches and I love to walk through there...I think that I might be a stalker of houses, but I love looking at them. I am always on the lookout for good design and there is no shortage in this neighborhood. It was so nice to be outside on such a beautiful night and to spend the evening with my husband and child, having a chance to spend time with each other. I never remember just how much I love summer until it is here again.

The theme for NaBloPoMo is NOW. I think that sums up summer, especially the month of June. Summer is such a fleeting time and you have to take advantage of it. Eat outside, pack a picnic and go to a park. It doesn't have to be planned out or perfect or at the right time. Let your kids stay up a little later and go for a walk. Do it now!

Tonight was my favorite kind of night..


  1. I am a stalker of houses too - I go so far as to make appointments with realtors to view the insides of interesting-looking houses that are for sale, even when I have no intention of buying them. I'm such a voyeur!
