Coming soon…

gifts & parties!

I love giving gifts.  I had to put up a quick post to say “Thank You” to two fabulous clients that gave me some extremely thoughtful gifts this holiday.

Of course, I open the box and realize this is right up my alley!

Don’t you think it looks quite lovely on my checkerboard table I have in my foyer, which can be seen in my Holiday House Tour?

 Handpainted, I love it.  HUGE thanks to Kelly & Mike for their thoughtful gift!  I’ll be sure to mix this bad boy up and post a drink review when I get a chance.  I’m always looking for new drink ideas for parties.

 Next, three beautiful ornaments from the Gravier family.  At the conclusion of our last session, we had a discussion about how fabulous it is that I get to experience other’s children in a very unique way.  Paulina and Christian attended my party and showed up with three ornaments that resembled each of their children.  Such a thoughtful and unique gift.  I love these!

What great gifts!  I feel really lucky to have touched your lives so deeply to be able to be on the receiving end of your generosity and thoughtfulness.  Thank you!

Quick holiday party shots:

I must’ve had my camera out for a total of 19 seconds the night of our holiday party, and snapped the same guy, our buddy Vinny, for those 19 seconds.  OK, I did get a*couple* other guests but not nearly as many as I would’ve liked to!

 My fabulously handsome husband Jimmy :-), with Vinny.

 Vinny is quite handsome too 🙂

 She’s nuts, but that’s why we love her.
