The Washington, DC weather on Saturday may have been rainy, foggy and dreary but it had no affect on the atmosphere inside one cozy house in Northwest DC where it was bright, warm and full of happiness.
Was this house in some kind of weather bubble?
Yes it was because it was the site of a birthday party that my super duper spectacular friends gave for me and I can say without hesitation that it was the best birthday party ever!! Talk about healing! Wow! I was feeling the love and it was totally through the stratosphere for me in terms of people, food and fun!!!
Truly great friends are a treasure to have and to hold and I keep my friends near and dear to my resilient heart. These are the incredible people who were here for me after my husband died, these are the people who have helped me keep my heart open to the future and these are the people who came together and let their creativity flow to help me celebrate my magical birthday.
My friends are my soul mates and they make most things in life bearable because great friends always find the time to either hold your hand, listen to your story or go out and boogie on the dance floor with you!
The theme? What else? THE BEACH!!!
Mini beach balls, candles, sand, shells and best of all beach food. As in lobster rolls, spiced shrimp, crab cakes, potato salad and tomatoes and mozzarella and chopped fresh basil. And if that wasn't enough deliciousness, dessert was a Key Lime pie and a chocolate cake with many, many candles!!!!!!!! Totally yum, yes?
And just when we thought we could not eat one more forkful, it was time to crank up the tunes and dance the night away! Donna Summer you would have been proud of us!!
Twerking, congo lines, and a version of something called The Throwdown, were just some of the dance moves proudly performed and thoroughly enjoyed!!
After all these years together, we've still got it going on and I thank you my dear friends from the bottom of my heart!!
I am still flying from the emotional high. And that's the true magic of a party!
