Yesterday was fantastic. I started out my day with a 5K run for a great cause, followed by a stop at a nearby restaurant for a great breakfast and then a quick walk through the farmer’s market. That was my morning. It was the hubs birthday and I had to get back home to work on party food. Our fabulous friends, the Mahan’s opened their awesome home and pool to everyone. I made pulled pork and a cake from scratch. Our friends all contributed food. We had baked beans, macaroni and cheese, avocado and corn salad, chips, strawberry salad and a really great watermelon salad. OH-and browned butter cookies that were sooo delicious! The food was a great combination of comfort food and amazing salads. Yummy!
The kids were able to swim in the pool while the adults were able to sit around and eat, talk and drink. Everybody seemed really relaxed and happy, which to me makes a perfect get-together. The hubs had time with his friends and really enjoyed his birthday. I am thankful for so many wonderful friends that make our lives better. I am most thankful for my sweet, music man. I hope to celebrate many more birthdays with him. May we all be so blessed to have great friends in our lives and may we all appreciate each one of them. Reach out to one of yours today and let them know how much they mean to you.
