We wanted a quiet gathering. Calm, and cozy. Katie set beeswax candles in nooks and crannies around the apartment. A brussels sprout stalk added textural interest. We lit candles in the window. Rosemary and twine wrapped up the napkins.
Friends came and ate and napped. One of them sang. We all ate pie. The cheese curd containers became left-over take-aways. The end of the night had us pulling out the cot and tumbling into bed with the dishwasher melding with the city noise outside.
