Backyard Get-Together

#65: sidewalk chalk 

It was the perfect reason to get together: Tara's 35th Birthday! We gathered up 20 friends who each brought a dish, including bacon ranch dip to chocolate chess pie (which will be at our wedding!), olive tapenade, spinach and artichoke dip, kale & Brussels sprouts salad and so much more. We even managed to start a fire (in our fire pit #50) with our soaked wood, which probably also smoked out our neighbors.

Of course I was feverishly shopping for some cheap patio furniture and since all of it is mostly gone for the season, we made due with a few folding tables and chairs. However, I'm already plotting what this backyard living room will look like this time next year...and it's amazing.

I'm participating in the 92 Days of Summer challenge. Click here to read all about it and here to a see a gallery of pictures of everyone participating.
