a place to gather

My father-in-law, David, built us this table.

It's solid oak, sturdy, and has simple lines.

It's the perfect table to laugh and celebrate around.

To hold hands and cry over.

To host holiday dinners.

To make ordinary dinners feel special.

To work on elaborate craft projects.

To play board games (we've already bought a poker-green length of felt just for this).

To keep in our family for generations.

It's my dream table (just in time to fulfill those summer dreams).

Thank you, David!


  1. That is so awesome! You are very lucky and blessed to have such a gift :)

  2. Oh, how very nice! Oak is the best and nowadays, unfortunately, you can get solid wood tables but many are veneer with a composite board underneath!!! Ours is not a nice one...we've been married almost 12 year & I think my husband could make us a good one, but for the meantime, I'll keep using my pretty tablecloths.

  3. What a sweet gift! That is the best thing to receive.

  4. How beautiful!! Not to mention how dreamy, lovely your picture is just on its own! So happy & excited for you! What an amazing father-in-law! :]

  5. What a perfect gift. Something you'll use and love and it's beautiful too! And will be around for generations.
