Come Inside Our…

We had the opportunity to host a

wonderful annual event,

in our home last evening.

We were honored to have the distinguished members of ABOTA,

The American Board of Trial Advocates,

gather at our house.

(The Mr. is a member)

There was a bit of pre-party spiffing…

You know, paint touch ups,

window washing, lawn mowing, gravel raking,

house & garage cleaning…

(thank you everyone, now we are set for summer entertaining!)

Fresh plants were tucked about…

Our guests were shuttled to our home

via Butler Valet!

So cool! Thank you to Butler Valet!

And then, the doors were opened.

Potted Orchids,

tulips & greens

greeted our guests.

A big thank you to Paul & the fabulous florists at

Metropolitan Market Kirkland!

So pretty!

The event was expertly & beautifully catered by

A Platinum Event.

(Our dear friends recommended them…fantastic!)

The beverage bar was set.

The gathering underway…

The dessert table proved

too tempting for me!

You know what they say,

‘ life is uncertain….’

Delicious food courses,

served in elegant martini glasses.

I must apologize, no photos…

I was enjoying the party!!

What an incredible treat though,

to have

Kari, Kristen & the crew take care of us!

They even brought their own ovens!

Thank you so much!

Now, we are spoiled!

When the event wrapped up,

the house was spotless

and we were left with…

gorgeous bouquets,

yummy leftovers.

and the lingering memory,

of a very nice evening.

Thank you ABOTA.

The morning after,

all that was left to do,

was open the garage,

so the rental company could pick up!

In a few hours,

our dogs (Mac & Ava)

will return from ‘doggy daycare.’

There will be dog nose prints & kid handprints

on our windows, once again

and the gravel will be flying.

Shoes, basketballs, baseballs and footballs will be scattered about

and I, will be doing the cooking and cleaning.

In short, ‘life as usual’ and I’m good with that!

We are blessed.

But, for a few, brief, shining moments…

not gonna lie…

I really, really, liked it!
