everyone said how happy i looked, and i was.
all evening i was surrounded by the people that mean the most to me--the people that make me laugh the hardest or have known me the longest or have given me the inspiration to tackle something new. those people were there. of course, some folks couldn't join us in the celebration, but i felt them in spirit.
the food was delish (i hardly got to eat, but the leftovers were amazing).
the band, the orbits, rocked the house with their mellow, perfect mix of swing and cajun and ballroom. thank you guys.
i enjoyed most of all spending the evening dancing with my truest love, gazing into his bespectacled eyes and knowing that i am his forever.
the curse of my dreaded horoscope has been broken and there doesn't exist a better way in the world to slough off the cloud that hung over me recently than to dance, drink and eat with so many kind, wonderful and gracious friends and family.
if this is what your 40s is all about, i am raring to go!
