Revisiting the photos, I’m remembering a festive evening and thinking about party logistics! Jonathan and I were happy with the FLOW at this soiree—we created conversation groupings scattered around the back yard, and it worked—our guests really circulated, and I LOVE that at a party. Heirloom LA did the taco bar catering, my brother-in-law Nate made his infamous killer margaritas, Jonathan made Sangria, and Anne Litt did the soundtrack. On the cocktail front, we learned what a “White Mexican” is, courtesy of Jaime Garcia: a take on a White Russian, it’s horchata + tequila.
It was great to see high school friends Ramona Emerson and Kathleen Crawford, Lisa Benko and Jay Linwick from college at the U of W, my very first boss Joyce Nadig, and all the other friends & family who came from New York, Washington, Montana and—almost as much of a trek—from the West side of LA to celebrate with us.
