Dinner at Eight

I love the fact that we can all come together as friends, to have great talks, laughter, sharing our day, drinking wine, eating AND being ourselves!
These pictures are from a variety of nights at Festival.
We begin all of our dinners with a toast by Rachel Parris
"Here's to strong women; may we raise them, may we know them, and may we be them!"

  1. Oh, does that look like a fun dinner party! I love you art work on your pin, it looks fantastic. Keep on partying! Give Melly Mels a hug from me. Cheers.

  2. a glamourous dinner party, then a pajama party? Sounds like continuous partying to me! And totally fun. Glad Houston was such a success---of course, you worked very hard to achieve that success. Kudos!!!!

  3. You look so elegant! Where did you have dinner? It also looks elegant. Sounds like you had a wonderful time and a LOT of fun. Sorry I didn't run into you.
