So I took a big step. I invited about 15 people to meet up at our condo Clubhouse to celebrate (I love having a theme). It's simple, just bring your own beverage and some finger food to share. But this is the first "party" I've hosted since Mr. Ralph left. Will I be able to do it?
Oh gosh I realize how much I counted on him. He always kept the conversation going. The glasses filled. Greeted each arrival with a personal conversation. Introduced those who didn't know each other.
Sure, I did my share. Choosing people who might get along. Setting the scene to be warm and welcoming. Thinking up a little menu to go along with the theme.
I'm starting small and not hosting a dinner, so that makes it a lot easier. Although I've been dreaming up a fun menu for my first foray into entertaining at the next level.
I just miss him so much.
