Party. What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans.
Parties are an irregularity in my life these days; so when I think of that term with those words, my mind again stops, stalls, and wonders. So it is not the one that perhaps "rocked [my] socks off" but the one that brought lots of laughter and joy. In the winter, Nan and I were invited to go up to the mountains with two other couples and one child to spend a couple of days hanging out, snowshoeing, eating, sharing stories, and laughing laughing laughing. It's a small group of friends that we've continued to get to know better over time, a small community that gathers maybe a couple of times a year due to schedules and one couple having a toddler, a group that genuinely enjoys being silly with a slice of smartness.
