...Bring a gift.
Fresh radishes from our garden. Beer and a nice rosé.
...Accept gifts graciously.
In this case, a delicious muddled drink from LCBO magazine. Strawberry, basil, rum, ginger beer.
...Eat what is served.
They almost gave me a heart attack by saying Big Mac. But it was sooooo pleasing and picture perfect. With sweet potato fries, a roasted red pepper and savoury/spicy/sour walnuts.
...End the evening with good manners and a sweet goodbye.
Black raspberries that I picked at the cottage this weekend. With cream and brown sugar. What more could you ask for? (Wait, let me check... friends, food, sun, a swimming pool, a bicycle ride. I think this is perfect.)
