A wonderful evening of joyful celebration

On a more personal note... my husband and I spent the last 3 days preparing for our long awaited house warming celebration that we hosted last night. It was a colorful and exciting evening of culture, fellowship, food and the most beautiful mixture of vocal and instrumental music. Guests participated in the 2+ hour long African Drum Circle adding to the percussion frenzy and dynamic dancing in our backyard.

Friends left with an uplifted spirit and requests for another opportunity to join together in musical merrymaking. Multicultural gatherings, such as this, is one of the great blessings of marrying a man from halfway around the world.

I look forward to the next time our new and old musical friends can once again gather together for another uplifting day of fun. Thank you everyone who contributed to yesterday's event, it went well beyond my expectations and dreams.

I briefly picked up my camera to capture a few moments from our magical night, ENJOY.

Below is my beloved husband starting off his percussion debut on the tambourine... (he later moved on to more exciting instruments)

Finally, Happy Father's Day to all you wonderful Daddies! Now that we have cleaned up, I am going to go lie down and recover from the festivities.

Nice pics! Looks like everyone had a great time. By the way, I still have the stool you left so let me know when you're in the area and I'd be happy to set it out for you. :-)
