the mason jar picnic
I first saw this idea on The Bright Life, a blog my sister recommended to me (Katie is one of her friends from college). Considering how many empty mason jars I have floating around the house right now...is it canning season yet?...I knew it would make for the perfect Sunday afternoon picnic. If only an opportunity would present itself, because let's be honest, who has time to picnic when you're painting, and building furniture, and painting, and cleaning, and painting, and hanging doors, and did I mention painting (I do not lie, if I have to wash one more roller I'm going to lose it...ok, maybe I exxaggerate a little...). But fortunately we have a great group of friends from church who all get together once a month to do something fun and this month was, you guessed it, A PICNIC!
Try this yourself with all those mason jars you may have rattling around...you know, since the peaches and pears aren't ripe yet and canning anything but peaches and pears is a sin (or maybe those are just the only fruits I have experience with...it really could be either one).
