It officially feels like summer here in Michigan! So this past weekend my dear friend Jihan and I decided to get together for a picnic. We needed a fresh perspective and a little inspiration. What better place to find it than surrounded in a field, with thousands of peonies?! She made a beautiful bundt cake and I picked up this pretty white table cloth from Target. We packed some fresh fruit, macaroons, some drinks and headed to the Arb. It was so good to catch up with Jihan, and have a little girl-time. This was a much needed therapy for the both of us. Breathing in the fresh air and the sweet aroma, it was very relaxing! There was a gentle breeze and we could smell the fragrant peonies fill the air. I think its important when you’re married or in a relationship to maintain a bit of independence and schedule some girlfriend fun! We felt like little girls – laughing and not having a care in the world, this was our happy place. We threw around some ideas for our future date nights with our hubbies. They don’t quite know all of the plans we made yet. 😉 And we talked about how we would like our future backyards to look just like this… Maybe one day, a girl can dream right!?
