Yup, that’s right, I threw myself a birthday party. Wow, did I learn a thing or two. First, thank you to my Grandma and Papa for driving over 8 hours that day to make it. I love you and truly am grateful for all your love and support. Thank you to my Mommy, for loving me through, well, you know. To Michelle for the days of pomp-poms, to Tonya for opening them. Thank you to Aunt Karel, who took, “The kitchen is that way, I’m sure you’ll know what do” and got all the food done, fabulously might I add. And- Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who came. I am blessed to have you in life, you made my birthday very special.
Food Lesson: Have it ready, before!
Lesson: Sometimes, less is more.
Tip: Matching booze bottle tickled me pink.
Everything here was virgin. It was ‘add your own booze’ this was great- I thought.
Tip: Dishes box was great-Made it easy to put a lid on things and deal with the mess the next day.
Lesson: Love doing this stuff so much, I’m back to school for graphic design….
All the cookies are gone. There’s still 27 pounds of candy hiding in my house. I had a wonderful time planning and prepping for this party and I hope do to more of them.
Quite possibly the most important thing….
The Man loved it all.
Major lesson: Make every day count, surround yourself with people you love, smile often and love a lot. (And learn how to photograph parties)
