This Friday marked the beginning of our weekly (or biweekly) "family dinners"! It's a time when we can all get together as a group of friends, 8 of us this week, and sit down to watch a documentary, talk about the week, and eat a home-cooked meal. It also gives me a chance to try to new recipes and see how they turn out! With everyone pitching in, whether its bringing something to share, helping me cook, doing the dishes, or taking out the trash, it becomes an event that we all can take part in and enjoy. Vlad surprised me with flowers too, which were so beautiful! Different flowers, but all such a vibrant yellow, they looked amazing in my green and yellow kitchen! It started off a perfect weekend, which will hopefully be followed by many other perfect weekends in the upcoming fall!
