My friends got together on Sunday night and threw me a surprise birthday party! First one, then another friend or family member arrived, until there were 18 of us gathered together. It was truly a surprise, because my birthday was on December 23rd - over two weeks ago!

The cake is homemade - a delightful concoction of white cake and cream cheese frosting, with apricot brandy filling. Yum! I'm not sure of the significance of the 7 candles on the cake - I am neither 7 nor 70, but somewhere in between... :)

There was also homemade soup, and wonderful bread, and lots of wine and good cheer all around. It's been two days, but I am still basking in the glow of such a lovely gift - the gift of loving friends...
