It's a Party!


Yesterday, Julie hosted a retirement party for a good friend of ours at her new house.  It was a perfect day for the party.  Lot's of sunshine.  Above is Julie greeting guests at the door.  Julie and Dave were great hosts.  The house is looking fantastic with only a few more things on their list to be done.


I volunteered to make the dessert for the party.  I made a strawberry cake that I haven't made in several years and I'm not sure why.  It looks great an tastes even better.  I need to make it again real soon.

Both you and Julie are kind to your friends. Her new "digs" look pretty spectacular.

Went to a huge retirement party Saturday evening. Grads and retirements. It's that time of year. Did you save me a slice?

That is a grand entrance! There is absolutely nothing grand about our place but you can bring us one of those cakes.

Well, I guess my last comment was very obvious. I went back to read what others had to say and discovered I had already commented! I think you get the point: I really, really like that cake!
