family at the table redux

That table -- with food, flowers, family... It makes an appearance again and again this weekend.

(Morning pre-breakfast with Ed...)

Brunch is nearly always the meal that draws a visit to a close. We're at Forequarter... The young family, the young couple -- all here, much to Snowdrop's joy.

(Even as Snowdrop never forgets that there is a Gaga in this midst - one with a very welcoming lap.)

She asks to draw. She wants to improve and she fills a page of her Moleskin notebook with intricate designs...

And the food comes and we dig in...

(What is everyone talking about?)

One last piece of bacon...

And then I say my goodbyes and drive home.

One last Sunday table: an evening family meal at the farmhouse. A smaller group and nothing ambitious -- but still fresh and honest.

Snowdrop leans on Ed's knee and urges him to leave the news magazine and play...

He never says no to her...

Hey, you two! It's dinner time!

We eat, they leave, and then I lose myself to my thoughts and reflections. So much to think about, so much to love!
