I belong to the most nontraditional book club I know.  A group of girlfriends and I get together on a monthly basis for ‘book club’ but we never assign a book.  We never even talk about reading.  We just use the term ‘book club’ as an excuse to get together each month.  The hostess rotates monthly and they get to plan the activity; wine and cheese pairing night, at-home-facial night, drinks on the patio, cooking dinner together… you get the idea.

This past sunday, my ‘no-book book club’ got together to kick off the season of jazz in the park.  This month mary hosted us and put together quite the grand picnic.  We had tons of fresh fruit, a bunch of dips, cheeses, crackers and super tasty brownies for dessert.  Oh, and lots of wine!  
I brought my most favorite low picnic table which is an essential item for any good picnic so you have a place to congregate snacks and keep your drink from spilling over into the grass.  Mary also laid out one of the quilts she made and gina brought a couple too.  

It was such a fun night listening to hazel miller play in the background as we told stories and laughed away the evening under the setting sun.  I think I am going to nominate myself to host next month’s and have the girls over for a backyard soiree.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Great blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but
    I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting
    with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..

    Any tips? Thanks!
