“For the Lord takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with salvation”
Blogging has opened up a world that I had no idea even existed! When I began two years ago, I never dreamed that I would “meet” so many wonderful new friends! I have found the blogging community to be such a warm and inviting one, and now you are all a part of my Everyday Living! I feel as though I have sat on your sofas, tasted your delicious recipes, and conversed with you all through your kind and gracious comments!
Last weekend, Butch and I were able to drive over to Birmingham to meet Shirley from Housepitality Designs and her sweet husband for a late lunch! We hit it off and it felt as though we had known each other forever! I was the guest blogger for her yesterday, and if you haven’t met her, be sure to run over and see Shirley’s beautifully decorated home as she shares sophistication on a budget…she is so talented! I so enjoyed my time with her and it made me think…I sure would love to have all of you into my home for some sweet time around my coffee table! Today, you’re invited to sit down and make yourself comfortable…we’ve got some chatting to do!
I decided to keep it simple and prepare an assortment of “sweets” to set up on my coffee table….because who doesn’t love sweets?! Serving in my family room is more casual for this small get-together, and I don’t have to prepare a full meal! I love to cook for guests, but you can easily buy many wonderful desserts from your local bakery or grocery store…and the kitchen stays clean!! In the foreground is sliced brioche topped with goat cheese, apricot preserves, and a sprig of thyme.
