Fairy Lights

outsidepartyAt the beginning of the summer we strung fairy lights in our meadow, slung in lazy arcs over the triangle of ancient oaks that top the flat little rise before the whole thing goes sloping into queen anne’s lace and deer trails. The New York City free-craigslist picnic table Sweetheart and I snagged from a strange side yard in a Yonkers adventure is going strong (even with the repairs I made after Miss Lucy and Rav and I broke it dancing on it at the first party we threw, whoopsie), and we’ve been dining under the lights at least once a week since. How easy and wonderful and magic it feels to have it set up out there, ready and waiting for us. And something about it isĀ pretty magical, as if you are in a room made of glow. And after Miss MoMo took the above shot during Dear Miss Ann Marie’s jubilee birthday dinner this past weekend (officially the end of summer, but not the end of lightmagic), I realized that everyone who comes over takes a picture…here are some of my favorite friend’s snaps from this summer under the stars, amidst the sweet and easy shine of the lights.66eedea811e611e3af571231390ef217_7ammr lights7982b75abdbe11e2926822000a1f9c9b_7f3d88b9ab06911e2963b22000a1f9c8c_7 1414faf8ff5511e2aacd22000a1f932c_76cc1da50132711e3979222000a1f9bc6_71958762a0e0511e38c1022000a9e08e0_7 86aff498b05c11e2a2e022000a1faf45_7 1590f72ab05d11e2aa3022000a9e2931_7161e3ffea24d11e288f622000a1fbc72_7Thanks, of course, to mollyleddbetter, ammmr, mrsravenel, lucymcfa, aransler, likeyouwalkacross, mckaymc, and thefieldblog for coming to dinner and for being so beautiful themselves.
