I’m finally getting around to posting my 30th Birthday Bash from this past summer. I wanted a real Gatsby affair, but on a budget. My friends Jen & John deserve the most credit for letting me borrow their gorgeous home to host the event. Jen also spent countless hours helping me plan and set up. She is the most selfless and generous person I’ve ever met and I am so lucky to know her. My other friend Deana spent hours helping us set up and introduced me to Jody who served at the event. Thank you, ladies!!!

It was a dreamy evening and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to enter my thirties!
Thank you to all my amazing friends for getting all dolled up to celebrate with me! ❤ I’m the luckiest gal. And how!

There was one day of the school year I looked forward to almost as much as the first and last days–and that was our school’s annual Quiche Breakfast!! Kitty, our cafeteria manager at the time, would make a large spread of various types of quiche as a celebration before the holiday break. The staff would come in early to enjoy her amazing creations. Sadly, when Kitty passed away several years ago, the tradition ended. Going off to break without this tradition for the past few years just didn’t sit well with me.
So, amidst planning my own annual Ugly Sweater Party, wrapping up my school work, and shopping for Christmas–I decided to pitch an idea to my colleagues that we conjure the Spirit of Christmas Past and host our own “Merry Quiche-mas” in Kitty’s honor.
I was overwhelmed with how positive the response was to my idea and I am so grateful to work with such kind people.
If you’re thinking to yourself that quiche is way too challenging and that’s why you’ve never attempted to make one before, well, stop that crazy internal-talk and TRY IT! It’s SOOO easy and they are so yummy!! If you want to try to your own, some recipes are posted at the bottom of the various types my friends contributed to our quiche feast.
