Time Flies

For some reason this week is just flying by and I am having very little time on the computer. I am praying for a quiet day tomorrow so I can catch up with blogging.
Lots of good things happening and lots of things to keep me busy.

Last night I wanted to surprise Emery with a special meal as a thank-you to him...he surprised me with a gorgeous Prada handbag yesterday, its the softest leather shoulder bag I have ever seen.
I am all girl and even though we live simply, I would never turn down a gift like that. So wildly extravagant and certainly a gift that makes me feel a bit spoiled !
Here are a few pictures from our meal and hopefully tomorrow I can catch everyone up with the happenings around our little farm.
Chicken L'orange with sauteed asparagus, not sure why the chicken looks dark in the photo, it wasn't in person !
for dessert, pistachio gelato
served with Champagne of course.

Your meal looks delicious!

This meal looks so beautiful....And pistachio was always a favorite with my family, wherever we were. Lovely. And what a wonderful surprise gift from Emery. I think he knows what you will enjoy!

Your table looks wonderful and so fancy ! I would have loved to taste the asparagus. Thumbs up to your wonderful, thoughtful husband.

Patty, the table setting is lovely. The simplicity of your design really highlights the solid beauty of the table and dinnerware. And surely the meal was scrumptious :-)

Real food, real romance . . . and a special gift chosen just for you from your beloved. Who needs more than that? Life is indeed very, very good.

Have a wonderful weekend!

What a lucky girl you are! I love the white dishes, makes the food the star of the show!
You & Emery are blessed to have each other, I'm glad you both recognize that, and make each other feel special.

Every single night before I go to sleep and every morning before I hop out of bed, the same prayer in on my lips.  Of course I pray for m...
