Every year, in the town I grew up in, they have a community dinner on the ground. Families plan their schedules around the last Sunday in May...no one wants to miss this gathering! Tables are thrown together using saw horses and plywood covered with white paper to welcome the foods lovingly prepared for the occasion. Boxes, baskets, coolers filled and overflowing arrive...family secret recipes, 'store bought' prepared foods, it's all good! Washtubs filled with ice, giant coolers filled with lemonade and sweet tea to 'wet the whistle' of the hungry.
Ladies, I wish we lived closer so we could celebrate our friendships and enjoy a dinner on the ground. While not quite the same, I'm hosting a virtual dinner on the ground this weekend...as we are celebrating mothers, friends, family and our love of quilting.
