The party was so much fun. I wish you ALL could have been there. Conversation, food, music, book chats, dancing, desserts…we had it all. Including a beautiful book cake made by my friend, Jules Van Mil. Stunning!
And one little TINY thing did go wrong…we set up the Live Stream to record the whole party for you, but we forgot to set the controls to mute everyone who watched.
So…we have people eating popcorn, commenting (so funny!), and a few mums giving instructions to kids (hilarious) and a long conversation with a woman KINDLY telling her husband to stop vacuuming.
I’m sitting here this morning with sore feet, laughing just thinking about Life — and how lucky I am.
It wasn’t perfect. The Live Stream is too revealing of other people’s lives to share. But then, life isn’t perfect, but it’s so so good.
There was lots of time to hug friends, to share my story and to inspire people, too.
And family, and fun.
Here’s me with my guys, Luther, Luke and Elijah. How did I ever get so lucky that I got to share my life with them?
I’m a little sad that I can’t share the replay with you all…especially if you want to be a writer. The gist of my talk was this: don’t wait.
Now, for me, today’s about heading back into the city to clean up after the party. I hope you all have a good weekend.
Stay tuned in April — I’ve decided I’m going to do a whole month of blogging about my BEST recipes and food that I love to share.
