|Proof: Niece Ava finds Meg's name|
We had at least 15 people, maybe 20 at graduation. Then we had 25 people at Trattoria Lisina (winery/restaurant) for the big celebration dinner. Four courses! Antipasta, lasagna, chicken marsala, salad, chocolate mousse cake and of course, wine. It was so much delicious food. I was starting to feel full after the second course but like everyone else at the table, pushed through til dessert.
I also borrowed my favorite loaner-baby, 11 month old niece Adele, during dessert. (Her dad passed her to me "just like we passed the chicken marsala," down the table, person to person.) She was actually much messier than this photo implies. My napkin took the brunt of the disaster that was an 11 month old with chocolate cake within an arm's reach.
