Leon turned 60 last month. Next month, I will turn 50 (I'm getting to the point where I can say that without hyperventilating). So this past weekend, roughly midway between the two birthdays, we threw ourselves a combined 110th birthday party.
The birthday boys toast each otherWe were able to use the Museum as a party space. It was a lovely party. The weather was unbelievable. It was beautifully sunny and hit 80 degrees. The party had been planned for an event space in the Museum- but we had been told that we could also use the adjoining terrace if the weather was nice. I've been expresssing skeptecism since we made the arrangements last summer- but the weather turned out to be more than just nice.
We had a beautiful cake (chocolate cake, raspberry mousse filling and chocolate ganache frosting), wine, hot and cold hors d'oeuvres, and the company of several dozen good friends.
It was a real treat to be able to take my friends through the butterfly exhibit. Many had never seen it before.
