Surprise! It’s a Backyard Picnic

Yesterday was such a beautiful day. While driving home from work with sunroof open and some good tunes blaring, an idea hit me…we should have a picnic! Mr. Blue Eyed Yonder had a long day with all of the shenanagins associated with this project interview, so I decided to surprise him with a sweet, simple backyard picnic. The wheels started turning: where are those old sleeping bags…there’s the box of half-used votive candles…flowers would be nice…and some good wine…maybe even a fire in our new ‘fire urn’…hmmm, meatball subs sound good! I quickly ran into Harry’s Farmers Market to pick up the supplies and then rushed home to whip the picnic together before he got home from the interview. (He ended up getting home before things were ready so I sent him up to the bedroom to chill out while I finished up.)
He was so surprised by all the sweet little touches and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. There is just something about eating on a blanket that makes things feel so much more spontaneous and fun, makes me never want to go back to the table. We enjoyed our dinner, spread out on the blankets and just watched the clouds roll by and eventually the stars started popping out. It was the first picnic we have ever had at our house. Whoever knew such a fun, romantic evening could be found in your own backyard.
Here’s to many more happy backyard picnics!
