this past weekend we hosted a friendsgiving at our home called the feast in the forest (did you know we lived in the forest?). i've been dreaming of this very gathering for several years, but never quite had the right spot to do it. this year, we finally had the right place. we used a piece of land right across from our home where our neighbors chop and store their wood. it was even complete with 'stump chairs' and fuel for the bonfire!
24 of us gathered together to give thanks and reminisce. even the farmers who grew most of the food for our dinner came. it was so special! we drank hot apple cider, broke bread and painted wooden coasters. i'll plan to share the menu with you tomorrow!
all of these lovely photos were taken by my dear (and talented!) friend, callie lynch (she's available if you ever need a photographer in western north carolina!).
