The reception was a mellow, pleasant picnic where the weather held off enough to prevent an actual downpour. Kids were (mostly) free to run around and adults were free to eat all the blackberry cobbler they wanted.
Here's some of the Hilltop crew doing just that.
And here are many of us with the beautiful blanket they knit for Jesse and I! I believe it's from Mason Dixon Knitting.
That's Karen, Martine, Jenny, Jesse, Betsy, me, Teresa and Daphne (some of the knitters involved are not pictured here). It's adorable and because of the coolness of this summer I've already begun to use it!
Thank you all for the lovely handmade gift to warm our home.
