What a lovely evening!
Janie made the best lamb stew ever, Ann and Scott went to Thomas Haas for an out-of-this-world lemon lemon tart, I brought 3 glorious bottles of prosecco and Sheena and Terry provided the warmth of their home and the kindness of their family for us to share this lovely evening with each other.
Laughter filled the rooms, hilarity and innuendos flew about like lemon drops in summertime. Between Nigel and Scott's repartee breaking everyone up repeatedly, the beautiful squatters' delightful tales of hospital visits gone awry and Sheena's wicked sense of humour, I've laughed my heart out and my stomach is sore from all of it.
Once, during the evening, I excused myself, went upstairs to the bathroom, and after washing and drying my hands, I spotted a tube of Sheena's delish hand creme from her amazing store, At Home. I squeezed out a more-than-generous dollop, anticipating the soothing feel of the lovely stuff...only to discover upon spreading it over my hands that it was actually....toothpaste! Was that the prosecco? Hmmmm, I like to think not!
Before I knew it, time to leave...the evening reached an end all too soon for me. After sharing a perfect meal, some amazing conversation and soaking up a home full of love and laughter, I feel ready to take on the world. With lovely people like these in my life, what more could a girl ask for?
