We took a page from SouleMama's book today and made a better effort to make dinner time special. Even if it was just pizza and orange juice!
Both of my tablecloths are special to me. Splurges, purchased at a store I can't afford anymore, they remind me of all the good friends we've had around our table in the 7 1/2 years we've been a family. Even if I never iron them anymore.
We have fancy napkin rings, which I do love to use. But these ones are extra special. My daughter and I made them last summer with a sturdy cardboard tube and extra paper from her birthday invitations.
Handmade flowers created by one of my dearest friends. A happy reminder that fresh-cut flowers are just around the corner!
By the way, tonight's spinach and olive pizza was a raging success! Neither of my kids picked off a single topping (they normally pull off everything and just eat bread and sauce). Definitely doing that again!
