Yesterday was a gorgeous day here on the farm. #s 1-3 have been away all week which means I am in super-organize, clean, de-clutter, donate mode. I spent the day working on projects, as well as took the opportunity to do a couple of things that I have been wanting to do lately. Case in point - I hung my laundry on the line in the sunshine. It was glorious!
We also were home for the day in anticipation of the arrival of something we were oh so excited about... Isn't she lovely???
(the glare from the sun was awful but I had to take a photo of her first day!)
Our incredibly sweet friends - city dwellers that they are, had offered her to us as they were changing their fabulous rooftop terrace around in downtown Seattle. (Miss Annie wrote about it here)
I couldn't accept fast enough, as you know I have been dreaming of outdoor dining since my return from Chez French Family. She arrived in the afternoon and it took me about 18 seconds to set her up and then plan our first dinner outdoors. She is the absolutely perfect shade of gray and I absolutely adore the look of washed wood so I am nearly beside myself with giddiness at the photo opportunities!
This morning when we awoke to the sound of birds and the bright sunshine in the windows, I knew were we would be eating breakfast... It was the first time I had used my linens that I bought in France and they were perfect on her. She is currently sitting in our little patio right above the pond with the sound of the waterfall flowing in the background. She is next to the outdoor brick fireplace which is perfect for those evenings when we entertain at her and the evening becomes a bit cool.
And she is perfect for enjoying breakfast with your handsome husband or your little sidekick~
I couldn't be happier (I snuck out last night just before sunset to peek at her again) or more thankful to our wonderful friends for offering her to us. I promise that she will be very loved, and well used here on the farm. If you ever want to visit her, enjoy a lunch or dinner on her, or just sit over an afternoon lemonade, we would LOVE to have you!
merci! merci! merci!!!
