After a year of hard work — more like yard work — we feel like we have a home we can be proud of. This was our first big party in our home, and so it felt a little like a belated house warming.
Even though it rained almost the whole evening, we all had a lot of fun. Jonathan and I were grateful to everyone who stopped by! Here are my first round of photos from the big event:
(The soon-to-be Nortons!)
(The Kotrlas w/ their backward drinks)
(Strike a pose — not bad for a woman who only gets 30 minutes of free time a day!)
(The Barnards, Almons & Wallers all watching the parade with their kiddos)
(Here's a better view of my patriotic dress! Shout out to Carolyn for loaning me the shoes!)
This blog post will be followed by a blog detailing our decorations and a blog sharing a few recipe favorites from the evening. If you couldn't make it to this party, make plans to see us soon!
