Our friends brought us dinner the other night. They came with a huge basket of burgers ready to BBQ, watermelon and potato salad. And both of our families relaxed together on a hot summer's night.
Badminton for the kids.
Then the girls whipped up dessert, and waited on the adults.
Paul even got kiwi pruning tips.
We ended with an outside fire and good speaks. Meaning, it wasn't just fluff.
Sometimes our conversations are deep at dinner parties - but I'd say they have soul, passion and warmth, as we encourage and challenge each other.
Would you rather have passionate conversation around your table, when you invite others in, or keep it safe and light?
