Friends, I am so in love with springtime, with so many vibrant colors and so much fresh food! We’re in Prague this week, so hopefully you’re following my Instagram stories of the food and culture. What an amazing city with so much history.

I will say, we’ve eaten our share of asparagus and walked through the Easter Market many times! (More to come!)

Impromptu Dinner Party

I realize that the term “dinner party” may be old-fashioned to some, but for me, I like old-fashioned. I like to think back to some of the best memories in our home, when we’ve had families over for dinner, or just adults.

When we want to have a dinner party, it’s usually because we want to catch up with people that we feel connected to.

Tips for an Impromptu Dinner Party:

– Invite people into your home instead of going out to a restaurant (where the food can sometimes be very disappointing).

– You can sit as long as you want and visit and not worry about getting kicked out.

– You can eat good food, and you know exactly where it came from.

– You don’t have to get dressed up.

– If you have time to plan ahead, you can share the cost by delegating a portion of the meal.

Impromptu dinners can sometimes result in the most fun times together.

You don’t have time to stress about the details. You learn to go with the flow and to “enjoy the moment.”
