That is the first word that comes to mind when I think back to last night. I had decided that of all events, infertility was NOT going to steal this one. I had really been looking forward to it, plus several of our friends know about our situation and have been amazingly supportive.
Yesterday it was absolutely gorgeous out so my husband and I decided to walk to the party. We arrived and had such a wonderful time. Everything about the party was fun, a lot of fun! I visited with friends I hadn't seen for a while, some I see all the time, and even managed to make new friends. Everything about this party was outstanding, the hosts, the other guests, the food, the drinks, the conversations. So much fun!
We left the party at the same time as another couple and they invited us over for tea. We really enjoy their company, so even though it was getting late, we happily accepted their offer. I'm so glad we did. We were able to enjoy even more time visiting and after a long night, a hot cup of tea is the perfect way to wind down.
Thank you so much to our party hosts, our tea hosts, and all of the friends, new and old, that I had the opportunity to see last night.
Upon arriving home, we found two kitties waiting for us in the foyer. Guinness was actually sleeping right in front of the door and the poor guy went flying when it was opened. Oops. After a few cats treats and a scratch behind the ears, all was forgiven.
As I looked over at the clock I thought for sure the time was wrong. How was it possible that we had been gone for almost eight hours? I guess the old saying is true, time really does fly when you are having fun!
