Can I just say how much I love having women in my home? I just LOVE it.
We had such a nice time at lunch today--though we were sorry that Amy was sick and Wendy was having granite counter installation woes. We missed you two and prayed for you!
It's so fun to sit back and hear how we're all connected somehow, how God has brought us together to encourage and share life together. What an incredible thing! I just love each of these women and was sad when they left.
Miss Millie joined us for lunch in the dining room, wearing one of my favorite aprons.
The table all set...
...but looking so much nicer with everyone around it. (Kari left before we remembered to take a picture, and thank you to Abbey--Meredith's darling daughter--for her photography skills.)
(Back row: me, Meredith; Front row: Kate, Holly, Angie, Kimberly)
We ate Meatball Minestrone (the recipe is oh-so-easy--just search over there to the right for "minestrone" and you'll find it posted on my site), homemade Italian bread, and salad. I made apple pie for dessert (since Meredith doesn't like chocolate--crazy, I know!). But I could eat apple pie morning, noon, and night (and will, since I made an extra!) so I'm not complaining.
So go grab some girlfriends and have lunch together--you'll be glad you did. And to those of you who were here today (and anyone else in the area)--let's do it again soon!
