Spring CookoutLocation: Atlanta, GA • 04 May
It’s almost Memorial Day weekend. For the past twenty-five years, my family and several others have gathered for a big cookout and some backyard baseball on Memorial Day. Those of us who were once the children of the gathering are now bringing our own children.
We start with a barbecue feast and everyone brings homemade sides and desserts to share. Once the kids are full, they run off to the baseball diamond (occasionally running back to the kitchen for cookies), while all us girls chatter for hours about our travels, cleaning, children, and careers.
I used to dress to play outside, but now I prefer sitting in the sunroom sipping iced tea with the ladies. This year, I found the perfect casual blue maxi dress (only $17.90) from Forever 21 (which was a steal) and some comfortable fringe heels. Can’t wait to enjoy the day with all my family and friends!
