This weekend our sweet Tom turned 40 & we joined him & Jen and lots more wonderful friends in a rented house in Palm Springs to celebrate.
Tom's vision for the celebration was a huge feat prepared by all of us together. It was incredible. We had Egyptian lentil soup, blue cheese green beans, assorted sausages, short ribs, little skewers of quince & cheese, figs with goat cheese, shrimp scampi, potatoes au gratin, and corn on the cob. I'm probably forgetting something. It bordered on Roman-style gluttony. (In a good way).
Also, there was swimming. And drinking. You probably had already guessed the drinking part. Remind me and my giant head never to stand right next to Jen & her little delicate features again, please. I look like a Blythe doll next to her.
Dash spent about 23 of the 30 hours we were there in the pool. This is what he looked like when he had to come out.
Happy Birthday, sweet Tom! We are blessed to have been able to share it with you!
