We had our annual girlfriends Christmas lunch today at our new "mansion" as the girls refer to it as ( only because the house size comparison from the pink house is staggering). We have been doing this for several years and it is one of the highlights of the Christmas season for us. Sometimes a girl needs a kick in the pants to get her house together and entertaining was my 'kick"! Dan and I got rid of the last boxes, hung curtains and artwork, moved furniture out of storage and decorated for Christmas. It feels so good to have the house mostly together. Here are some pics.
Our luncheon was yummy too. We all contribute. This years menu was:
Egg, spinach, feta fritata
Traditional Stolen coffee cake
Warm winter fruit compote
Good Coffee and Gingerbread with lemon sauce.
So I am relaxing tonight with my love, Dan and planning our next party!
Spending the holidays with those you love and dear friends - perfect!
