Autumn Luncheon

Lady friends eating lunch under falling leaves. Warm food. Cool air. Good conversation. It’s almost embarrassing how long I’ve chewed on this idea.

Okay, you win. It’s been 2 years in the making. Don’t judge. I don’t procrastinate (at least intentionally).

Thing is, last fall I was cooped up with Sir John (the toilet basin). 1st trimester was fugly, you guys. The year before that? All I can remember was living off of rice crackers, avocados, and olives… a new mom coping with a very restrictive allergy diet.

Major bummer two years in a row!

Happy to report, this year it all panned out! Definitely well worth the wait. Or maybe that’s just the food talking.
