And, as probably goes without saying, the food was fantastic. Tami and Mike cooked up some delicious tidbits that included tabouli in lettuce cups, artichoke bruschetta, gravlax, jalapenos stuffed with asiago and wrapped in bacon, potato latkes with a lemon sour cream sauce, stuffed mushrooms, blt deviled eggs, pumpkin cupcakes made by Betty, ginger cookies baked by Jen and the chocolate dipped potato chips that I brought (super easy - melt chocolate, dip one half of a potato chip in chocolate, let dry, eat). Some pretty pictures for you.

Happy Party People
Our gorgeous hostess
It was an evening filled with laughter, food, wine and the best conversation. Eric and I marveled on the drive home that we could not have imagined the turn our lives have taken. In the time we have returned to Atlanta from Los Angeles in July, our social calendar has run amok with parties. Some with trusted, long time friends, and some where we are forging brand new friendships.
It's a wonderful life.
Happy Monday, Darlings.
