Holiday Party

My holiday party was an awesome success! All my old high school friends showed up, and some of my friend’s friends from college showed up.

Earlier, I also purchased a bottle of Atmosphere extra brut sparkling rose and two bottles of Nicolas Feuillatte champagne. Ariel also brought tons of dumplings and even a pie!
