Eight lovely ladies, a bottle of champagne, and two of rosé on a Tuesday night.
I don’t know if it’s a sign that I’m getting old — but getting invited to my friend/soulmate, Angela’s “Origami Paper Crane Party” was preeeetty exciting. Apparently paper folding is my kinda party. So yeah, if it is a sign — well, getting old is AWESOME. ;)
I tell Angela that she should have a blog because you can photograph her life moment to moment. Her response — I have a blog: HENNA BLOSSOM. Oh yeah… ha
Like I said in (this post), Angela is getting married: and let the festivities begin! Yup, the cranes are wedding related. Gonna be AMAZING (two week countdown!).
The crane is a symbol of “good luck, happiness, and peace.” It’s said that making 1,000 paper cranes will give eternal good luck or grant a wish. Angela only needed 150. And um, our night’s work only produced 44.
So yeah, I don’t know that we can ask the universe to grant any wishes just yet. But you know what, we’re good.
And it was funny — I mean, LOOK! What a beautiful night right? Let me tell you, we all needed it. As excited as I was to get together with this group of girls, and as excited as I was to learn how to make a paper crane, I was exhausted. E-X-H-A-U-S-T-E-D. I’d only slept two hours the night before, and you don’t even want to see my “TO DO” list.
I sprayed half a can of “dry shampoo” through my mane (ew), threw on a jersey dress (AKA could-be-pajamas), slapped on some blush (so I didn’t look dead) and went anyway. SO GREAT – I walked in and everyone else was in either jeans or a jersey dress…we’d ALL had “THAT DAY.” And when you have that day, what you need is a group of amazing women (and maybe some champagne, rosé, and paper cranes).
