I’m a big fan of all the wonderful details of a well thrown party. But, there is also something special about an impromptu dinner party with friends. No stressing over whether the house is perfect. No hours of preparation.
Tonight I enjoyed just that. At 3 PM we texted a few friends an invitation. At 6 PM everyone showed up with items for the grill and bottles of wine. I threw a tablecloth over my card table on the patio and we had a lovely dinner alfresco.
It’s important to not forget how great the small and not planned-to-a-tee parties can be as well as the more elaborate parties.
I love the sun in Portland. It might be the most beautiful city I’ve ever seen when the sun is shining.
Today we went walking about in SE Portland. We enjoyed the weather by going to a local coffee shop, hitting the park, and some outdoor shopping! We bought X a running stroller today (so much better than the stroller we had). We also went to a garage sale and an estate sale. It was my first estate sale and I’m pretty sure I’m addicted. I spent $5 at the estate sale and came out with 7 yards of great fabrics and 5 beautiful vintage sheets. So excited about all the future projects! We spent $10 at the garage sale and I came out with a craft supply set-up like no other. Oh, and a set of prisma color pencils! Good day. Now, resting a bit before a dinner with friends out on the patio.
