the importance of summer parties

one of my absolute favorite components of a good summer is having friends and family over to grill, relax, listen to music, play cards or scrabble, watch movies … whatever! a few weeks ago, we had the opportunity to have dan’s parents over to hang out and do just that.

we started with some wine. we broke out a bottle of the crisp white bombino we smuggled back from italy.

we set up an antipasti plate to complete the teleportation back to our vacation/wine tasting.

five six

 

we called my parents to make sure they knew how much we missed them.

two one

 

we ended up lighting a fire to combat the breeze, because we couldn’t bear to close the windows and deny nature’s presence at our gathering.

to top off the evening, chef dan created a turkey burger bar with sweet potato fries.

eight ten seven

 

here’s hoping we have many more opportunities to host chill get-togethers this summer!
