Last night there was nothing but love and laughter at our house. Matt and I cooked up a huge pot of gumbo, fresh rice, and our favorite yogurt cheddar cornbread for a feast with all the parents. We danced in the kitchen and sang along to our favorite oldies Pandora station* and got ourselves excited for our next phase in finding the perfect house.
Dinner with the parents was more laughter and easy fun. We devoured dinner (my mom brought German potato salad and broccoli salad) along with champagne (Cook’s finest…our household go-to) and a bottle of red wine. After sharing stories at the table we dug into Matt’s mom’s fresh strawberry galcé pie…what a perfect spring treat!
It was a fabulous night. We kept the Pandora station going all night, the songs sparking more stories.
You’ve gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind of music
Even if nobody else sings along!
-The Mamas and the Papas
We are making our music, and our song feels so good to sing!
*our favorite Pandora station was created simply by searching “The Association”…best mix ever!
