52 Weeks of Happiness :: Week 32


Hosting a party at my house.

A dear friend is moving far away,

so my friends and I had a
little going away party in her honor.


We lit the fire pit on my back porch

and cozied up to the fire

late into the night.


There was yummy food,
I made the now world famous
Red Velvet Cake Balls,

they were a huge hit.


We sipped on cocktails
in fancy glasses.
My featured cocktail was
called the Velvet Dream.

The ladies swooned.

We listened to good music
beneath the stars
and had a night to remember.


I feel so blessed to
know such an amazing group of ladies.

We laughed,

we cried,

and said a fond farewell

to our lovely friend.

My heart is so sad to see her go

but I am grateful to have spent

the time with her that I have.

We'll miss you Linh!
