At the Table with Lindsey

I’m making the transition from summer to fall, at the table with Lindsey Dinnerware by Mikasa. As much as I would like to fling myself headlong into fall, with cozy sweaters, bowls of hearty soup. . . . . . and mugs of hot cider~ there is plenty of summer weather with temperatures in the 80s…
