The Girls and one Baby Girl
I feel like I need to get on board the dinner-party-at-Jeana's blog post train before it's too late and I hope it's not. First of all, Jeana, thanks for inviting me to your beautiful house for dinner. Those mussels were unbelievably good...and I believe I may have had 10 +
and Heather's cheese platter was an inspiration. You can't really go wrong with a cheese platter, but Heather's display is an example of how you can go so very right -- so right in fact that I couldn't stay away from it. But we had an amazing feast ahead of us, so I tried not to get too full on the little open-faced sandwiches I was making. I mean, when there's a fresh baguette, roasted flavorful tomatoes, a nutty and fruity spread and soft cheeses on the table, I'm going to drop my poet status and become a mathematician to see how many combinations I can make. To stop myself from getting so full, I wandered around Jeana's beautiful house in exploration. What kinds of things did I do to distract myself from snacking?
Said hello to the resident doggy...
and hello to the resident kitty. They both played a big role in the night...and helped me save my appetite.
There's Rami posing with our lovely host, Jeana, in a quiet candlelit moment. Good wine, pretty flowers.
It's about time to present the evening's star, Iroha! I was so happy that Michiyo brought her. At about 9 months, she fits in perfectly with the big girls. What a cozy night we all had...
