1. Steve hangs lights from the pergola. We are all excited to think how pretty they will be tonight.
2. I like preparing the cheese board. The Havarti with dill matches the green glass board, and the Brie is perfect under the glass dome. A cracker basket is just the right size for the Parmesan crackers and a large clear platter is suited for the fruit. It's fun to scrounge through my limited pantry and come up with workable serving solutions.
3. A hilarious round of "Fictionary". A game where players make up definitions to obscure words, trying to make them sound believable in order to earn points. This game makes me laugh to tears every time.
4. The lights do look magical as we enjoy the garden and porch this evening with friends and family.
