I threw a party yesterday. Actually it was more like a mini wedding. Did I go overboard? Well, yes! What started out as a small get together for a little girl turned into a tented event with a band, 6 cases of Chianti, tons of Italian bread and lots of laughs.
We had a great band, Doug Ferony, http://dougferony.com/ , who was amazing,
a stage that could have doubled for the deck of the Titanic as it was sinking, a magician with two doves, family, friends and even a dog or two.
As the forecast for rain went from possible chance of showers to 90% chance of downpours, the tent got bigger.
The energy that went into the setup - in the rain - was incredible. I think I didn’t sleep for 3 days! I cannot thank everyone enough for the time & energy they gave me, I am deeply grateful - you know who you all are.
I must admit, that it was enjoyable. She smiled through out the day, and FINALLY around 10pm admitted she was exhausted and needed her feet rubbed. The lack of sleep was something that I don’t miss, but for her I would do it all again.
