Setting the Table

Our son and his friend completed their first STP challenge yesterday. The STP is a 206+ mile bike ride from Seattle to Portland and approximately 10,000 people participate in the event every year. Yes....206.4 miles! That is a lot of time on a bicycle and an amazing accomplishment!  

As you can imagine....after a long bike ride like that, you need a place to rest and refuel. That was our home last night. We love having guests and hosting people from all over the world.  One of my favorite hosting pleasures is setting a nice table. Yes....that seems like a strange thing but I love making things look pretty. A friend of mine works for the YWCA and does valiant work there. We joke about our roles in the world.  While She saves the world....I try to make it beautiful.
