I waited all day for this: a chance to relax with friends! Boy have we missed them these past few weeks. We need a healthy dose of our friends, at least weekly.
The evening started with mariachi music from Pandora and a few Trader Joses!
Kate + Nate were the first to arrive
Plus homemade guac and TJ’s corn chips
