Pumpkin Gingersnap Ice Cream Pie Dessert

Friends, inspired by Taste of Home Magazine, I whipped up this Pumpkin Gingersnap Ice Cream Pie Dessert for company last week and everyone loves it.

And … did you know that November 13th is World Kindness Day?

I am teaming up with my friend, Emily, at Beyond the Red Chair, to Share Your Table!

Sometime during that week, invite someone to Share Your Table.

Enjoy a good meal! Indulge in some laughter! Dig into dessert! Here’s the Beyond Kindness part: invite someone you don’t know that well to a meal, with the hopes of building a friendship. Maybe someone who is different from you in the way they live, grew up, worship or vote. Seek to make it all about them!

It doesn’t mean you have to break out the best china. Just bring your best attitude, whether it’s in your home, at a restaurant or park! Share a meal. Share your table! Practice kindness!

Then share your stories and pictures with us! #shareyourtable #beyondkindness

I’ve written about it for the last month, as Emily’s sharing on her social media The Beyond Kindness tour! So fun to follow along. (Check out her Instagram!)

A few weeks ago, we had some new friends over for dinner! It was so fun to get to know them, to hear about their lives, what makes them excited and passionate about daily living, goals and dreams, and if they could do anything, outside the box, what would it be?

Friends, those are great ways to dig in and get to know your neighbors.

Leave politics at the front door (unless you feel comfortable), and enjoy the people around your table!

If you can’t invite someone that week, of course any week will do.
