A few weeks back I hosted a small outdoor Wednesday night dinner to welcome friends Nathalie Jordi and Brett Anderson to Florence (and to celebrate my new deck).

We listened to old records.

Thrift stores finds were on display.

Zach made his delicious tomato pizzas with olive oil pie crust.

We enjoyed cocktails made with Jack Rudy’s Small Batch Tonic, and good times were had by all.

Thinking back on that night, I now want to plan a monthly Wednesday night get-together. Perhaps it is the new feeling of living indoor and outdoor at the same time.  Or, perhaps I just miss my time living in Europe where dinner with friends IS the entertainment; BUT, it feels like time to celebrate the approaching Autumn, take more time for good friends and food, sit a little longer, and enjoy life a little more.
