Party Planning and More Party Planning

This afternoon while frothing milk for my Double Tall Soy Mocha, a drink I make each and every day for myself, I thought about Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving is a big to do around here since I've hosted the big dinner for the past couple of years. I enjoy the 3 days of non stop cooking leading up to the time when eight adults wiggle their bottoms into seats set around a table just large enough for six. November is always a busy time of year. Located at the lower right side of my gigantic calendar, Thanksgiving gestures me forward like a neon light. Though this year, I've got even a bigger event to plan.

This year my husband and I will celebrate our 40th birthdays. He in November {the week of Thanksgiving} and me the week before Christmas. To celebrate we're hosting a cocktail party at our home the Saturday before Thanksgiving. That means, lots of party planning will occupy a good portion of my free time over the next few weeks.

I'll admit that I am a little nervous about hosting two big events and I'm also excited about it too. I mean really, I get to shop for party decorations, a cake, flowers, candles, wine, food, etc. It'll be so much fun. Or, it will be a disaster. Let's hope for fun.
