i *heart* my family: the dinner table

With Thanksgiving just a week away, family gatherings are on my brain.  This unmarked photo was grouped together with some of my maternal grandmother’s photos.  I do know that it’s her table and lace table-cloth (that my mother still has).  But I was surprised when I saw this photo because 1.) someone actually used a frame to capture a lovely table setting — instead of a person and 2.) it piqued my curiosity as to what the special occasion must have been.  But I really like that someone took the time to try to capture something seemingly ordinary when it wasn’t necessarily in vogue to do so. I like to think there was good news, love, and laughter shared over a beautiful spread. (I also like that I’m not the only one in my family to take pictures of a table setting! )
