What kinds of Saturdays are your favorite? We have had a lovely series of Saturdays the past few weeks that have all been different, yet wonderful in their own way.
Last weekend we were at a wedding which was filled with lots of exciting time with family, fun preparation work and a beautiful ceremony and reception.
This Saturday was so much calmer and we worked around the yard and house in the sunny, warm weather, working on projects and tidying up the landscaping for spring. It was a quiet day that gave us a sense of peace and accomplishment.
Both types of weekends are wonderful and balance each other out. Gathering with family and friends to celebrate life events is exciting and fun, but at the same time, we need the calm days at home to catch our breath and savor the small joys in life.
This dessert would be great paired with Tomato Bacon Capellini
