table for 4.



... and sometimes the sweetest of blessings come along. 
i've mentioned wendy and tim before ..
they teach english (as a 2nd language) in a faraway land.
they're back in the states for a few weeks and a lunch date was squirreled in to their very busy schedule of visiting near and far, here and there, hither and yon. wendy is a very special someone in our lives for a myriad of reasons..we love her so much. being married to tim has added such a fun dimension to her life .. 
and everyone they meet. We love tim too..

so i set the table for 4.



a steak knife was placed on the corner,
for it was a necessary implement
for this meal.



i cut a few flowers for a centerpiece



then the hubs and i waited with anticipation. 
hugs and more hugs!
aren't they adorable?


we consumed some serious rib eye steaks
with plenty left over for tacos another day.


simple meal really ..
grilled rib eyes
baked beans
ranch salad
thick sliced bread
& berry sundaes

we're planning for them to come over in a couple weeks before they fly far away .. they'll be gone two years. this time they'll bring wendy's folks - dear friends of ours. the hubs will grill a mess of thick bacon from our local german deli, and we'll put together BLT's to please a king. worthy of a post all its own. yUm.
