You know, there is just something about certain rooms in your home. My favorite room has to be the dining room. When we found our home, it was already 90 percent finished. It didn't have a dining room, but a sitting room. We immediately asked them to knock a wall out and make a dining room that would join into the great room.
I love setting the table, lighting candles and playing soft music. I have to admit, we listen to Delilah in the evenings. Not really my kind of music....a few songs here and there but I love to hear all of the people calling in about their love stories. If you ever get a chance, especially around the holidays......with the Christmas music....give it a whirl. I get made fun of around here, but I secretly think the boys like her too :)
Our friend Kathy gave us some yummy peaches, so I made Peach Cobbler. I used Paula Deens cobbler recipe. It turned out wonderful.....and was very easy :) Just remember to use a big enough baking dish----I did have a bit of a volcano episode.
I met my beautiful friend Barbara, aka Bung 13 years ago. It actually feels like I've known her forever. She has always been a big sister to me, sometimes a mom but most of all a very good friend:) She actually gave me her wedding china.....we use it all the time. Isn't it beautiful? It's Sango Navarro china. Thank you Bung......it's so special to me and I feel honored to use it :) Long live the gravy bowl! *wink*
Me and Bung in 1998. She now lives in Oregon :(
Here is a photo to show how close our mountains are to us here in Northern Utah. Taken at our church, St. James, about 15 minutes away. I love being so close to the mountains..and the canyon winds are dreamy. I remember when my husband moved here from Seattle, that was one of the first things he noticed. It almost seems like you can touch them :) He misses the water and the rain but he has free comedy each day with me.....what more could a boy ask for? :)
