Last night was my launch party. Oh my lands!
You know the scene in Emma...I think it's the Coles' party. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong. But the basic idea is that everyone arrives early to help, so the party starts early. Well, that's not exactly what happened, but I had so much wonderful help it was stunning.
People willing to vacuum, decorate, and go in a friend's attic without protective gear.... those people are true friends.
People willing -at a party- to traipse out in the snow to fix a sump pump hose... those people are worth their weight in gold.
People willing to see(and pretending to be interested in) my new bed project, those are generous souls.
Internet buddies who travel long distances to come see me, and then making sure my son doesn't sit quietly bored somewhere in a corner... those are sweethearts.
People brought housewarming gifts -to a house that I've lived in for 20 years, but need to make new. I was stunned.
My kids for being willing to come to what could have been for them an awkward enterprise, those are amazing dears!
My heart is bursting from absorbing all the love and good wishes. Pictures are coming, I promise.
