It is indeed time to celebrate.
LADIES NIGHT OUT:
LADIES NIGHT OUT:
A few weeks ago these two ladies ~ whom I met through the close relationship of our boys ~ and who have become almost like family, gathered in my home to step out of their comfort zones, learn a new skill and share my passion for paint. It turned out to be a delightful evening and gave us another reason to get together to celebrate the great friendships formed within our families.
Fortunately the cooler was eventually finished and fired along with the others. Now all that was needed to christen the coolers was a reason to chill a bottle and raise a toast. Which, with our group, is never that difficult.
PRE-GAME "TAILGATE" PARTY:
This past weekend, the "V" cooler took center stage, along with a few other orange and blue accessories, at our pre-game tailgate party held in the boys apartment up in Charlottesville, Va. The food and companionship was so good it was hard to tear ourselves away for the real reason behind our gathering:
~ U.VA. FOOTBALL ~
The game kicked off with "Cav Man" parachuting onto the football field for a perfectly executed wahoo landing. Sending up an enthusiastic roar from the crowd who continued to be astonished as the evening progressed ~
Looking over with amazement as if to say "Seriously, have you seen the score?"
Even the moon peaked up over the stands to make sure what was shown on the scoreboard was, in fact the truth. Yup - check out the numbers...we were actually in the lead!
It turned out to be a beautiful night and a well executed game ~ Spent in the company of wonderful friends and family members and capped off by a team in great form.
At the end of the evening it truly was a time to give thanks for good plays, fair calls, great friends, and the kinship of family. We all look forward to a reason to gather and christen the two other wine coolers!
