A few short years ago, our friend Amy went off to California to seek fame and fortune. After a time, reports reached us here in Chicago that she’d found something far more precious. Last weekend, Amy came back for a visit and brought along her brand new husband Casey! Connie and Jake hosted a party for them, along with a dozen or so lucky guests including yours truly, giving us a chance not only to see Amy again, but to decide whether we approve of her choice of a husband. Well – we do. We’re going to let Amy keep him.
Here they are cutting the cake; specifically, an ice cream cake inscribed “Amy and Casey.”
Happy as I am for the lovely couple, I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the incredible board of fare orchestrated by Connie and Jake. Note especially the platter of barbecued shrimp and asparagus in the center of the picture – yow! And this shot doesn’t even include the guacamole, the salsa, or the deviled eggs. Thank you Connie and Jake!
