Spring Break started today and we're outta here.  Lucy, her friend Grace, and I'm off to Kentucky for the week.  And, I'm ready to run!

It's been a busy, busy last couple of weeks around here.  Best bud, Jane Scott Hodges, was in town to visit and host a Leontine Linens show.  We had a fabulous turn-out and a really fun week.  Now, we're off to Kentucky to visit her family and some other friends too.  And, we are going to our farm to visit Ragland Hill.  Can't wait.

And, this week, we hosted a great party for another best friend's 40th birthday!  Such a fun fete and her husband knocked this one out of the park.  We opened our front door to guests but he did the rest.  It was a night to remember.

It was a great night of celebration with fabulous food, fun drinks and a very special guest.  Chef Felicia Suzanne catered and brought her famous short-rib grilled cheese sliders, beef tenderloin, salmon deviled eggs, shrimp and grits, chocolate lava cakes and much more.

We had cosmopolitans and whiskey smashes for specialty drinks (and, of course, anything else your heart desired).  The food started coming then and we couldn't get enough.  Just delicious!











And our special guest, Elvis, arrived mid-party to sing Happy Birthday.

And more delicious food.

He was still here.



Just scrumptious!

Chocolate cake for dessert and yes, Elvis had "left the building".  Such a fun night for all.  There were lots of people here even though from the pictures it appears it was just us and Elvis.  I lost my camera mid-party and found it later in the night (hate it when that happens).  We were having lots and lots of fun!

I'll be traveling this week but try to post some mid-week.  I hope everyone has a great weekend and Spring Break!

We'll talk soon.
