Ask anyone who has ever had more than a 5 minute conversation with me. I am NOT a big fan of the unexpected and unplanned. In fact, I normally go out of my way to ruin a surprise so I know what to expect. Sad, but true. It is a bone of contention between my husband and I. But let’s save that for another blog post, shall we?
Last Tuesday afternoon, I got a call from a client asking if I could put together a catered dinner party for Friday night.
