From Sarasota to Stockholm; Swedish Sendoff Dinner

Last nights Swedish Sendoff for Cami & Christian was complete and utter per.fec.tion!
Hosted by Caleb & Courtney,  {i promise all of my friends don’t start with C’s …} who went above and beyond.
I thought I was just coming to a picnic … but i should have known because with
 our friends, it’s never just anything. 
it was sooo dreamy.
we arrived to see candles draped in banyan trees, a chandelier with babies breath hung from a tree branch, swedish flags lined the way to the party … people stopped and stared.  some even came up to us, b/c they couldn’t resist letting us know just how special it all looked.
{i understand these people, i would do the same
SkÃ¥l!  = Swedish for Cheers
swedish meatballs, mashed potatoes, and asparagus!  yummm!
{favorite part of the evening- we each had to write about what we think the person to the left will be doing in one year. . .
some people seemed to write for ages.  ( : … should make for good reads in one year.
  and then on the other side – all about us today.}
Cami & Christian – we love you!
Wishing you tons of success in Sweden!

    ok I LOVE that idea about writing what the person to your left will be doing in a year. Will you all get back together and read them in a year? I can see there be lots of laughs in that one.

    Also, AMAZING pictures. The scenery/decorating is just amazing.
