Today is one of my Facebook friend's birthday and in thinking of her today, I asked her on her wall what festivities did her and her husband have planned for the big day?
You see, this couple truly celebrates life! They seek to mark special occasions and even ordinary, wonderful days with fanfare and seize the opportunity to gather their friends and loved ones in festive and fun celebrations!
Basically...they throw amazing parties!
We had the privilege to be included in several of these when we lived near and worked with this couple! How I appreciate and remember these occasions! Always unique, warm, upbeat, beautiful and memorable!
One that stands out was a birthday party she and a friend threw for their 'milestone/decade marking' birthdays. They rented out a barn and decorated it to the hilt, had a square dance and gave out CD's with songs from their previous decades! They are master entertainers, creating such an electric atmosphere that invites conversation, fellowship and laughter...memories!
Sure enough, to celebrate her birthday, her husband lined up a French Chef to prepare an authentic French dinner for 12! What a cool idea! Oh to be invited again - so lucky are their friends!
An inspiring example of how to truly celebrate LIFE and mark special, as well as ordinary days, with fanfare, gathering of people, warmth, creativity and LOVE!
Happy Birthday, Rosanne!
