Dinner for 11

This is the power of gathering: it inspires us, delightfully, to be more hopeful, more joyful, more thoughtful: in a word, more alive.
~ Alice Waters

Last Saturday we were happy hosts to 9 friends, who joined us for a dinner party.

I think it is safe to say that all 11 of us adults + 1 baby + 1 dog had a great time :-)
