Makes Me Smile – Backyard Picnic


For some reason I felt a little down this weekend. Not sure why but I was in a little bit of a funk. It probably had a little something to do with the nasty head cold I caught on Thursday. So I really needed something to smile about come Sunday, and today.

And nothing makes me smile like a backyard picnic.

Long story short: we have a huge backyard, it was sunny, I love my picnic basket and Matt knows it. He got some cheese, breads and chocolates and I grabbed the open bottle of wine and it was all smiles from that point on.

Linked up with Yolo Weekend Update. Hope that you’re all enjoying your Monday and that you find a couple of reasons to smile!

    So fun!!! I’ve never thought to have a picnic in my backyard! I’m glad it lifted your spirits (I love the last picture!) and I hope your cold goes away soon!!!

    What a great and simple idea. Eating outside, even if it is just your own backyard, is a very cheering thing to do and surprisingly it was even warm enough here!
