Tonight I find myself thinking about the northern lights and how I would love to see them, one day. I saw faint traces of the lights once, when I was a kid. They are so hauntingly beautiful.

I realize I never mentioned Geoff in that whole post -- so selfish! Geoff, of course, did a lot of work, helped put everything together, and ran out at the last minute to buy extra food and drinks. Thanks, babycakes!
carolyn: I'm glad you like them! I was pretty pleased to have found them.
erin / atlantictreefox: If you're here in July, I'll see what I can do! Ha!
Molly: Thank you!
Miss Crowland: Wise words indeed!
erica-knits: Yay yay!
CARLY WAITO: I knowwww, I was sorry you were sick! But I really do hope to do it again, and soon! That is, not in a year from now. It was definitely the people that made the party so you would have fit right in.
Chelsea: Aw, wow, thanks!
Celine: Pretty funny how it worked out that way! Haha, gold forks indeed. I have to reuse them so I'm sure gold will creep into a future colour scheme! Thank you for coming!
nice-etc.com / caitlin: The cake was the greatest. You should get those favours! They were on clearance where I got them but I might have bought them anyway. Thank you!
Roberta Jane: Thank you! The colours made me so happy.
Jane Flanagan: Ha, I love that description!
ilovesasek: Nooo, don't be jealous! Throw a party just for fun! And if you happen to come back home when there's another one on, you are most welcome to attend.
katrina: Aw, wish you could have been here! I bet Erica would have been over the moon about that!
amy: Thanks, miss!
kate / tinywarbler: Thank you, Kate! That is so sweet of you. It was a group effort!
r=: Yes, hope to see you at the next one! Maybe Geoff's 30th birthday park picnic?
covetry: Oh, please do!
erin: Thank you! It was so fun.
kater: It's still all over my floors! I don't want it to leave!
Aprile: I'm glad you brought Jory because it was nice to chat with him! And with you! See you again soon, I hope!
sn: The cake was a showstopper, for sure! Thank you!
elizabeth: Thank you!
Missa: I'm so glad you agree. It was so fun to smash up! Especially fun after a little sparkling wine! And hmm, I have been looking to get into a different line of work...! In my dreams!
claire: Oh Claire, thank you!
Joslyn: Please do! It worked out well.
shin ae: Thanks, lady!

Julie: I'm sure Erica would have been happy to see you!
rennes le château: Oh, I know. There's so much nostalgia in them. I think it's perfectly fine to be a little silly from time to time!

REPLIES: the next day
Sam and Livi: Thanks! I still have a bunch of them around my apartment. They sparkle so nicely.
Alyssa Zygmunt: Me too! I couldn't resist them.
May: It was nice to meet you too! Thank you! I'm glad you got to meet the others.
erica: Thank you! Luckily it wasn't too gruesome... unlike some parties I've hosted in the past. The day after the party was so beautiful and sunny, I couldn't help but take all those pictures.
Pretty Mommy: Thank you!
Celine: I love the traces of the pink icing left on them. I was sad to wash it off!
jordan: Wow, thank you so much! I love the mountaintops too.
erica-knits: That's perfect! And never "for me," I would not have allowed you to touch a broom! It was actually kind of nice to clean up the next day (your actual birthday) with all that beautiful sunshine!
rhya: Thank you! And yes, I plan to wear mine again.
-Alaina: Oh, good luck! So fun!
PinkBow: Thank you!
miss sophie: The smell of blown-out birthday candles is one of my favourite smells in the world. I just love it. It's a happy smell, for sure. I hope kids never have that taken away with some weird new-fangled LED something or other!
Hollie: Thank you, miss!
Debbie: So glad you came! It was nice to see you!
