Late summer picnic

Posted August 22, 2011 by Christina


So we made it to the picnic last weekend.  It was beautiful out in the field, a little prickly when you were sitting down but still beautiful.  I always want to do things like this but never manage to get out there so it was really fun.  We had home made quiche, fruit, bread and cheese.  
I fell in love with the wild flowers, the bushes were taller than me, which I thought was super cool.  

I also want to give a big shout out to Andrea at The French Basketeer to say THANK YOU for the lovely bag!  It held our picnic blankets, our quiche and other goodies perfectly.  (I also used it at the store before we left to buy all of the goodies).




so perfect for end of summer fun, one last picnic before it gets too chilly out…
gorgeous images..

How idyllic! We are bombarded daily with messages that we need more and more to make us happy. You have shown us that the simple pleasures of a picnic in nature and time spent with our precious families are keys to “The Arr Of Living.”

Thank you for your sweet post.

Your post has encouraged me to get out this weekend and have a picnic at our favorite park. And, thanks for turning me on to the French Basketeer. Their products are great and I love their blog.

The memories of the moments you shared will make the rough days easier to bare.
That was not intended to rhyme! I’m not THAT sappy! LOL!
