I Love Leo's

 Two of my dear friends celebrated birthdays over the weekend.

 The partying started on Friday afternoon with a beautiful luncheon in honor of my friend Lisa. 

Afterwards I picked up my Mom and husband and drove up to Lake Tahoe to attend a special Birthday Party the next evening for my friend Terry.

She and her family have spent many a summer in Lake Tahoe, usually the entire month of August,  so she's accustomed to celebrating her birthday here every year.

But this year marked a milestone and her family wanted to throw her a Birthday to remember.

So friends and relatives from near and far gathered at the Lake on Saturday night to celebrate her 60th Birthday!

 Here's my husband with Terry's daughter Katrina who just graduated from UCLA and was doing a little celebrating of her own!

There's my Mom with Terry and her sister.

 A group shot with the Birthday Girl in the middle wearing turquoise.

There were handsome boys...

and pretty girls!

 All the makings for a good party!

Terry's handsome son, Nick, gave a toast 

we feasted on delicious BBQ from
Men Wielding Fire.

Teri's husband Joe and his best friend Charlie kicked off the dancing...

but it was the girls who really got the party started.

 Check out my Mom on the dance floor with Joe!


 It was a great party!!!

You always take such beautiful photos! Love to see Tahoe. I haven't been in YEARS. Looks like a wonderful celebration of life. God bless your friend and her happy family. This gives me such a warm heart to see, as I have 5, yes five!! friends going through divorces right now. SO happy to see the other side :))

Well this looks like quite the party, Terri! All of you are looking very handsome and pretty. Glad you had a blast! xx


Looks like it was a fun and festive birthday celebration this weekend! My birthday was this weekend too (Saturday) but I did something a little unusual - I had a garage sale with my hubs! We're going to the Miami Design District Art Walk next weekend to celebrate.

Happy Birthday dear LEOS!!!
