A Memorable Birthday Dinner + a Giveaway

I came home from running errands to find my house clean, a chef in my kitchen, the dining room table set for 12, and a group of friends standing in my candlelit living room. Even though it was Valentine’s Day, they were all there to celebrate my birthday. They left the kids (and cats) at home and drove from all traffic-filled directions of the Bay Area to be there. They gave up fancy, overpriced romantic dinners for two to eat a fabulously delicious family-style meal prepared in my kitchen by chef Will from Kitchit (http://kitchit.com). As we laughed and ate and drank (and then eventually “sang" karaoke…but we don’t need to talk about that), I couldn’t help but look around the table and feel so much gratitude for what – and who – was surrounding me. It was a night I will never forget. Image_Birthday Giveaway_Lori Fuller Photography
