Saturday last promised and delivered a warm sunny afternoon – perfect for summer dresses, shade trees and long cool drinks. The neighbour’s beautiful back garden came alive as enthusiastic friends and neighbours dropped in, lured by whispers of refreshing Limoncello cocktails and rumours of tasty treats.
In the midst of engaging conversations and summer holiday reminiscing, The Gift: Revelation was launched. The book took flight, flitting from hand to hand, blushing at the oohs and awes directed at its beautiful cover. Just wait until you read what’s inside, I thought as copies got tucked under arms and stowed in purses.
All too soon, the afternoon soiree was over and the crowd melted away. The host/hostesses and a few sturdy souls remained. We sipped a final Limoncello cocktail and unwound in the glow of a setting sun and a successful launch. How did I ever get so lucky?
Thanks, from the bottom of my heart, to Elizabeth, Stephen, Colleen, Mark, Galen, Kabir, Griffin, and, as always, John. XOLimoncello Fizz: Into the bottom of a frosty champagne flute Pour half an ounce of thick-from-the-freezer Limoncello Top with thoroughly chilled Cupcake Prosecco. Enjoy.
