I can't tell you how much I enjoy the company of my girlfriends, both old and new. There is something about spending an hour or two in good company that is healing to the soul.
Not only did I have my sister in law and a very dear friend over for my garden party but I also got meet Elaine of Sunny Simple Life, too. I can't believe I didn't get any pictures while they were here but trust me when I say she is even prettier in real life than her adorable blog picture shows and her inside matches her outside which is always an added bonus.
We braved the outdoors for lunch even though the temperatures were a tad bit on the warm side. I improvised a shade covering under our lattice patio cover to help keep things bearable.
And I gave our old, sun-faded cushions a quick makeover with some vintage sheet slip covers.
Nothing fancy, just a few pretty things to hopefully make the ladies feel special.
After a simple taco salad lunch, we headed indoors for a quick craft and then on to our little downtown village for some shopping. I hope the ladies enjoyed it as much as I did. I'm sure glad I didn't wait until everything on my to do list was done. As I told them, my house is lived in by a real family and the nicks and stains are now part of our memories. I don't know about you, but I'd much rather have memories than perfection.
