Book Club In The Garden



"ChocLit Guild"

This month was my turn to host our
book club.

The weather and the garden cooperated to make the perfect evening.


Debi brought the most wonderful G-free German Chocolate Cake!





After a couple of hours the mosquitoes took over the night and we came indoors.
What used to be our Poet's Garden shop buildings became our indoor spot for the rest of the evening.



Perfect!


" We are reading April 1865- The Month That Saved America and yes I have gone to book club plenty of times with out finishing the book and I'm not the only one :) Good thing we spend more than half the time (and sometimes the entire night) talking about other things that have nothing to do with the book. It's just fun, get out of the house, away from kids, get together, girl time. The book is sometimes a minor part of it."

Great photos, Mom. I certainly enjoyed myself. The weather, garden, company, chocolate, and conversation couldn't be matched!! Love the quote from Holly. :)

How pretty everything is. Looks like something you would see in a magazine spread. Maybe you should submit?
