Dessert is served

Sometimes the simplest celebrations… are the best.  A couple weeks ago, we were getting ready to say our goodbyes as my daughter headed back to school.  1500 miles away. (Sob.) 

With the most frantic shopping and packing behind us, my sister-in-law suggested we drop over to her downtown condo for a few quiet moments. Perfect!  

Our night view

Already past dinner, we sidled up to her candlelit granite island for wine and cocktails.  The conversation mellowed as the glowing lights of the city brightened behind us.  How about a little dessert?

She grilled peaches and pound cake on her patio.  Topped with ice cream and whipped cream, it was perfection.

Brush peaches

And we knew there would just be more good times ahead, as summer turned into fall.

Yes, sometimes the simplest moments… are the best.

Also great for brunch on the deck…
