Me dear friend Rachel was the elegant hostess for this lovely and relaxing evening. Dinner was served in the twilight, as the crickets chirped and the stars began to twinkle in the evening sky. We were surrounded by the gentle glow of white string lights and candles.
Tom and Rachel’s children, Hosanna and Caleb, made a pinata with the help of Tom. I think it began it’s life as “Winnie the Pooh”, but by the time it was ready to be presented, it had switched identities and become “Gooby“, instead.
After dinner, there were sparklers for all the children. In the process of helping the girls not burn themselves, I managed to splash hot candle wax across my hand. I’ve always been so very graceful.
Thank you, Tom and Rachel, for such a lovely respite in a busy month!
