Picnicking (with a basket and everything!)

Daniel’s birthday was Monday, so he took the day off and we had a picnic lunch at Duke Gardens. My mom let me borrow her absurdly cute picnic basket, and Daniel looked adorable lugging it around the gardens until I settled on the perfect secluded spot.

I paired these scrumptious prosciutto and roasted red pepper sandwiches with heaps of grapes and blackberries, and a thermos of steaming hot chocolate since it was a little chilly out. After eating we laid back on the blanket and watched the clouds. It was a cliché picnic, but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. When was the last time you went picnicking?

      Aww! I hope it’s the good, nostalgic kind of missing and not the sad kind!

    That picnic basket is so cute! I wish I went on enough picnics to merit getting one for myself. LL Bean used to have a really cute one. My BF and I went on a picnic in Central Park in September. We had grand plans of exploring the north woods, but after eating we just fell asleep in the sun for a few hours. It was lovely :)

    Love your blog, by the way!!

      Well, I’ll bet you have a big blue sky! That’s pretty much all you need for a good picnic. ;)

I love your comments more than I love chocolate (almost).
