One of the true joys of living in your home town is being surrounded by the friends who defined your childhood. Quite a few of my very nearest and dearest girlfriends have gotten married over the past year or two, including one, my sweet Annie, who will be married in just a few short weeks. I just recently threw a party at my apartment with some friends, complete with gobs of white balloons, vases filled of white flowers, my little white, tinseled tree, some Christmas candies (pomegranate & dark chocolate bites + peppermint bark), scrumptious finger sandwiches, a charcuterie plate, and lots of champagne. We had a great group show up and it was a lovely way to celebrate such a special friend at such a very special time of year.
I hope you all have a great, celebratory weekend.
