an anniversary / a weekend compilation

August 17 2014 126

i think it is fair to say that both Will and i like to entertain

we did it on the small balcony of our one bedroom apartment, we did it at the yellow house and we have done plenty of it in this house (maybe more than ever)

i think it is also fair to say that we have entertaining down easy by now

grilling is the way to go for sure

may it be burgers, hotdogs, kabobs, what have you

grilling food is the easiest way to feed a lot of people (and paper plates and plastic cups are the easiest way to fast clean up)

i/we think so anyway

but more important than entertaining is the fact that we like to bring people together

different kinds of people

older people, young people, single people, married with children people

we like to get a good mix in there

however, as great as it would be to have all of our friends over at one time, i find that keeping a party/bbq to twelve adults and a few children is the best way to go

that way things are still intimate and you can actually have a decent conversation with someone instead of hopping from person to person from having too much chaos around

as i put this post together, i realize it is officially one year since we moved into this house

a lot of bbqs have taken place in this past year

they have all been wonderful

here’s to many more!
