Last of the Summer Wine

imageBefore vibrant gardens are replaced with golden, red and brown leaves, my sister-in-law Wendy hosted one last summer hurrah for my brother’s birthday. August is over, but sweet memories like these make you appreciate the little things in life that are so important.

Long summer tables, with lively conversation and wine in the backyard. Food and family. Cheers!
