Brian and I had the great pleasure of visiting with Andrew and Rich for a Christmas party at the "Country House" hehe. The food was off the charts, baked ham and turkey, lobster thermador, Martha Stewart's famous mac and cheese, to mention a few. All made with the magic of Rich's golden spoon and fabulous kitchen. The hall's were decked with vintage Christmas decorations circa 1960's, it seems Rich is an avid seeker and finder with an eye for real treasures.
One of the highlights of my night was the chance to embrace and chat with Andrew's Mom Marilyn. This is the dream Mom of my child hood memories, always welcoming to the raggedy little girl from next door, so kind and caring. I was thrilled for the chance to introduce her to my best friend and husband, for her to see that I have found such happiness and peace was a wonderful gift. We chatted the night away, the conversation flowed like rum on a Pirate ship, and the memories were thick enough to cut with a knife. I felt truly blessed to have the opportunity to enjoy such wonderful company.
I will count this holiday party as my very favorite ever, a night with my first best friend and my current best friend and the chance to see them interacting.....................priceless.
So Thank You Andrew and Rich for a magical evening and the chance to have old and new friends become friends.
Happy Holidays to you both !! Hugs and kisses !!!
