Marlene & Dorian threw me a small graduation/”Gina Is Awesome” dinner part-tay tonight. There were several courses of food, involving all of my favorite things (duck, cherries, tomatoes, blood oranges, seafood, chocolate with mint + cherries + figs, mangoes, champagne, exquisite cognac…)
Nobody has ever thrown me a party before (at least, not as an adult). It was wonderful. I am deeply verklempt (also, possssssibly still a little tipsy from all the cognac). My heart feels full to the brim.
Thank you so much for being my family, sweet ones. <3
