al fresco dining...

Almost halfway through August and the summer is slowly coming to an end, Sean's athletes come back on Friday so that means early morning practices. As the summer winds down slowly (doesn't that sound depressing), I want to reminisce on one of the best parts of summer, al fresco dining.








I'm feeling so inspired I think I need to make the next few evenings al fresco dining!

Love all of these! I wish it was cool enough to eat outside here but it's still like 90 degrees by 6 pm so I'd have to wait to eat at like 8 for it to be cooler.

These look so awesome! We can't fine outside in the summer way too hot, but we eat outside a lot in the Fall!

Eating outdoors is one of my very favorite things about summer! Hoping we can get in a few al fresco meals at our new house before the temperature starts dropping!

Beautiful images. Yes, as the summer starts to wind down here we can hope for cooler evenings. Perfect for dining outdoors.

I love al fresco dining, especially when it's a bit cooler in the evenings!! These are enough to make me want to eat outside this weekend...not today since it's pouring!

I love this! People are so creative too.
My friend took me on a picnic near the water the other night - he packed a little basket. It was perfect (and not buggy, which is the only downside to outdoor eating). Gorgeous inspiration!

I love eating on the porch once it's finally not 110 at 6 pm. Maybe next month ha? Lovely pictures.

These outdoor tablescapes are so pretty- they make me want to buy twinkly lights and string 'em through the tree on my back patio and host a little end of the summer BBQ. :)
