Last year, I had planned a picnic to a particular spot many times and each time it rained! We tried again this past weekend and had beautiful weather! It is a short drive, but a beautiful one down what I call a "cute road" which means that trees are growing on both sides and make an arch over the road. It is an even cuter road if it is a dirt road or has a neat fence!
I packed a picnic dinner ~ and off we went! The bugs were out in full force, so we didn't sit still for very long, but it was a fun time anyway!
This is a really neat historic site of a church that was built pre-Civil War. It was burned a couple of times during that time in history - and now is a peaceful place to visit. It is meaningful to us because David proposed here!
As I was packing our picnic, I was thinking about the practical vs. the charming. You all already know that I go for charming over practical - packing our meal in enamelware, canning jars and a roasting pan is harder to transport -but so much more charming when you get there!
I can definitely appreciate the value of practical too - but wonder, how do you decide where to draw the line between charming and practical? Do you tend towards one or the other? Just curious... :)
