Thursday night we hosted a small gathering for my fabulous associate Irene Hill, her husband Kevin, Cary Blackburn who manages my website for me and his wife Deanna.
It was just Christmas lights and candelight when they first arrived, with a glass of Prosecco.
Irene arrived in a fabulous cape so we had to take a picture!
ps. Rebecca, I am wearing this same outfit to your party Sunday night, I don’t have a different dress. Plus I really want to wear my new Kate Spade necklace again.
Are you tired of seeing my mantle yet? Well too bad, here it is again!
My nephew Luukas was our server that night. He was fabulous! Look at the tray he’s just arranged to take out.
One of Irene’s Christmas presents from me were these Marc Jacobs rain boots so she immediately tried them on and then wore them the whole evening. When I found them for her I wanted a pair for myself so bad, but alas they were out of my size.
Then as I shopped downtown that day, I noticed EVERYONE seems to be wearing rain boots now, even over leather. A huge trend that I am now not part of yet, haha. The only rain boots I currently own smelled so badly of rubber when I got them a couple years ago they had to sit permanently outdoors and then the lining disintegrated.
Here you’ll see a glimpse of my neighbours outdoor Christmas lights.

Cary Blackburn and his wife Deanna.
Here’s Deanna’s place card. I found these floating tea light holders that I’ve had for years when we moved, a little red food colouring and they glowed as a centrepiece.
It was a 7 course dinner, Here’s the creme caramel.
Thank you Irene for all the brilliant copywriting you do along with so many other countless tasks that only someone as multi-talented as you could do!
Thank you Cary for being so easy to work with. The hardest part about having a business on the internet is finding the right people to help you move to the next level. You’re the best!
Irene gave me Season 1 & 2 of Downton Abby to watch over the holidays. Can’t wait, I hear it’s really good!
Have a wonderful holiday weekend everyone!
