One of my dearest friends, Lela, and her family are moving across the country in a couple of weeks. Every time I think about it I get a lump in my throat. She is one of the most loved people I know and tons of people will be left with a void in their lives when their family is gone. Hopefully they'll move back after five months! Fingers crossed!
Because it was Memorial Day, and because I wanted to, we decided to have a "see ya later" party/BBQ for them last night. We had our first outdoor summer party on the patio this year and it was so nice! I bought a long string of lights and David hung them around the edge of the patio cover. Then I set the table (that David made me) with some fresh flowers and cute plates I got for free from Wisteria! Cups and napkins are from IKEA.
