Our "Black Velvet Christmas" weekend at the Guncles was FAB.
Yep, that is the best word for it.
Except, the word should be written like this instead:
The home was colorfully filled with magical Christmas displays.
Tucked into every nook and cranny.
Not to mention that the house was also knee deep in gifts, that the guncles had generously bought and beautifully wrapped for their guests.
Fantastic, fresh seafood was fixed for every meal.
There were lots of pups waiting for cuddles.
A glamorous dinner party set up in a garden tent, where we cozily dined on lobster tails while a soft rain fell outside.
It was fun to have a reason to get gussied up.
I don't think I've ever been invited to a dinner party where my Handsome Husband put on a tux.
There was a complete bar set up with fresh limes from the garden.
And while it was rainy during our big dinner party, the rest of the weekend had perfect weather.
I loved being outside in the sunshine.
It was good for my soul to see fresh, blooming plants in winter.
And to share such a warm, welcoming weekend with good friends, old and new. Karen and I were already pals, and I enjoyed meeting her husband.
Randy and Kevin are top notch hosts, offering up more than just their home, they open their hearts up to their guests too.
And those guys are pretty lovable themselves.
They were overly generous with their gifting, but the best gift of all was them sharing their this haven of kindness, giving, and caring that is their home.
I'm very lucky to have married into this family. What great guys.
Thanks, Randy and Kevin!
