Months ago, while doing some antiquing, I stumbled upon the most beautiful table I think I've ever seen. Just as soon as I laid my eyes upon it, I could picture family dinners around it and in fact, I know this may make me sound a bit on the strange side, but I pictured family dinners around it years and years from now. Dinners that included grandchildren. In fact, I think it was the picture I fell in love with. I'm lucky enough to live within walking distance from my brother, my grandmother and my mother. We've been making an effort to set aside a night once a week(ideally) and have dinner together... our own little supper club. Back to the day at the antique shop, after calling my husband into the store, he agreed that we should have the table. It's residing in our dining room now and we've shared many a meals on it already. I had planned to live with our other table for a lifetime, but then this one came along and things changed.... We were able to sell the old set on Craig's List and not have to put out a penny for the new one. I love when things work out like that!! It's a piece of furniture that gets plenty of wear and tear, use and abuse in the house. The chairs are old ones that I mentioned in this post. I've had them reupholstered since then and like the picture above shows, they've already seen their share of spills... this one was just some water. The table was supposed to be filled with lots and lots of little kids today for my girls' birthday party, but I had to send out a group email to their parents letting them know that my brood is very much under the weather and we'd have to postpone the party for a few weeks. Well, I better go check up on them. All three sleeping.... of course this only happens when their sick. We're spending a quiet Sunday at home and hopefully, if the kids are up to eating tonight, we'll sit down and have some chicken pot- pie.
