It seemed like a good idea at the time. Since we knew we’d be grounded on the West coast for a few months with the CE’s leg in a cast, planning a party made sense, right?
We just failed to factor in just how grounded we would be – both of us less-than-abled – and we most definitely did not expect the month of October to debut as monsoon season in So Cal. But somehow, it all worked out, thanks to a ton of help (thank you Victoria, Alexandra, Pamela, Yoni, John, Marie Christine, Paz and everyone else!), a gifted caterer (thank you, Tammy!) and an intrepid group of friends whose spirits were decidedly undampened by the drizzle. Might have been our best party ever!
Our bartender, George, happens to be Greek, but he definitely got his German on for the evening!
Lots of flowers brightened up the gloomy day
The last-minute tent decision was a good call. Whew! Victoria made the lovely luminarias:-)
