Every year we start with a little cocktail hour, so everyone can arrive, grab a glass of wine, and settle in before dinner. This year’s event was potluck style and the food was outstanding, all of our friends and family really brought their culinary game. Between the cheesy potatoes, ham, stuffing, green bean casserole, yams, and more, we were truly spoiled. After dinner we had homemade apple pie and it was as delicious as it was beautiful.
To help keep everyone from going into a food coma, we launched into a big group game after the tables were cleared and the dishes were filed into the dishwasher. We had lots of laughs and it was nice to be able to relax and have fun with our friends during an otherwise chaotic time of year. They say that your friends can become a sort of chosen family, and I couldn’t agree more.
