We finally started to send out invitations. I don't know what took us so long? We had the invitations printed weeks ago. But life just gets busy...really busy. And there are still about 10 addresses I need to find. But some people have already RSVP’d. And so we will have guests! And my sister Dianna and brother Rick are also coming to the party. They will help us cook. If you are planning on attending, you will be fed very well! My good friends Donna and Cindy, and my sister in Law Amy and her sister Sue will also be there. I'm so excited because a group of us (8 of us) will be traveling to Italy for 10 days before the party. And while we are there, we will shop for good ingredients that will make the party special. So I hope to serve the best olives, garlic, and fresh herbs, good cheeses, excellent prosecco and wines, olive oil and balsamic vinegars. Everything freshly purchased from Italy. Everything prepared with care by my family and friends. It will not be a fancy feast. It will be a family feast. It will be deeply personal. And we hope very much that everyone who attends will be blessed. At least this is what is planned. We hope that you will come hungry and stay for a long time. The music will be good, and I hope the weather will be too.
