I had a super fun dinner with some of the gals from church the other night and the food was yummy. I belong to one of the oldest and the largest women's organization in the world it is called The Relief Society and we get the opportunity to visit one another.
When we visit one another it is called visiting teaching- Jesus Christ showed us how to minister—how to watch over and strengthen one another. His was a ministry to individuals, one by one” Visiting teaching gives women the opportunity to watch over, strengthen, and teach one another. It is so fun to meet new women and learn about them and their lives.
Each of us are assigned a companion and a few sisters to go visit on a regular basis. My companion cooked this marvelous dinner for us!
I set my table in bright colors that reminded me of Mexico! These awesome orange plates were given to me by my cute mom for my birthday and I just love them!
I went to the grocery store and spotted these gorgeous blooms that worked perfectly for my table.
I sliced limes and placed in the bottom of the vase...Tip: don't slice them too thin like I did...they started to disintegrate to quickly and made the water look merky :(
It is just fun to get together with some friends and chit chat about life and all it entails.
I need to do this on a regular basis...I love setting a colorful table and gathering friends and family round it.
