Friday Yay ~Celebrating Retirement with Friends

Within two hours after the final dismissal bell,
we were celebrating my last day of school.

Unbeknownst to me, our friends had arranged for
a special evening of food and fellowship.
They reserved a table in Roma's Tuscany Room.
Hubby and I shared my favorite meal, Shrimp Fra Diablo. 

I love, love, love my gift.
Pretty sure they all think that in retirement,
I will turn into a Crazy Cat Lady...

Here is our host, serving after dinner drinks.
We 'girls' enjoyed his signature Chocolate Martini.

In case you were wondering,
yes, that is a 'beer bouquet' with the cat.
It was cleaverly created by our hostess.

Thank you, for a wonderful evening...
I treasure our friendship.

This was the perfect way to spend 
my first few hours of retirement.


Take care,
~Natalie

HI Natalie - congratulations...retirement is so much fun.
Been 17 years for me this coming July and it seems like a lifetime ago that I worked. My husband has been retired for 23 years this July - I hope you enjoy your time retired as much as we have.
Such sweet friend you have - and the gifts are perfect!!!
Blessings
Karen
