This past weekend I hosted a book club sleepover. Can't remember the last time I had a sleepover party. High school?! There were seven (out of the 11 in our group) who were able to make it; so much fun to spend some extended time with dear friends.
We met for dinner at an Italian restaurant in our beautiful little downtown, where there's always a very well attended free outdoor concert on Friday nights, and then came back to my house to change into jammies, get some snacks, and settle in to a movie (Bride and Prejudice, a lighthearted Bollywood version of Pride and Prejudice).
In the morning, brunch.
|Noritake Cumberland, my wedding china; my MIL's silver, Rambler Rose by Towle-Sterling; and vintage linens.|
Everyone brought a dish to share.

My husband was very gracious about the whole thing, and took to our bedroom with a cooler and some snacks and his laptop! He left early in the morning and went out for breakfast. Thanks, honey!
Our book club has been meeting for just over four years now, twice a month. It was lovely to have an extended time with them to talk and laugh and share. I highly recommend it; you're never too old!! And I'm already thinking we have to plan a 2nd Annual Book Club Sleepover!
