Dinner dearest update: The Big Night was a smashing success – just like every other year (one + two). The guys did an amazing job of preparing and presenting each course for us to devour. A special shout out to Peter for his out-of-this-world dessert, layered pistachio cake with chocolate fig glaze. Enjoy a few highlights from the evening below:

Putting together an event like this leaves my feet sore and my vocal chords itchy from all the talking. The best way to ease the pain of post-party aches? Hot tea and a manicure. Oh and lots and lots of sleep.
In honor of the upcoming love-filled holiday, I think I may pay homage to cupid with a festive manicure tomorrow. Here are a few darling ideas I found on Pinterest for inspiration:

Looks great! Thanks for including my jewels on your ‘big night’! Maximally, John Wind
