Thankful for Friendship

For the past ten years my husband and I have made a tradition of celebrating anything and everything with a party in our Los Angeles apartment. The Oscars, the Emmy's, the Superbowl, Passover, Chanukah, and even some Thanksgivings in past years. But this year we decided to inaugurate our new home in Santa Barbara with friends who came to eat, play, and stay over for an adult, slumber party!
We had so much fun. Every moment felt like it deserved its own Polaroid.
Including this fella we named "Steve".
We ate. We danced. We got down Gangnam style...
 We draped decorative lights that helped set the tone outside as well as in.
And even though the water never got above 60 degrees, we all jumped into the chilly, Friday afternoon pool with frequent trips to the hot, outdoor shower!
We stopped to smell the roses.
 And took our guests out to explore the trails behind the house.
It was the most rewarding and wonderful way to spend the holidays, complete with sleepover, PJ party, cooking, swimming, dancing, games, and good, old fashioned talks late into the night. I hope we get to continue this tradition every year!

Happy Holidays to all and thanks to our amazing friends who joined us to make such great memories!

With Love,
