I couldn’t post these pictures last week because we were preparing for Gia’s surprise Retirement Party. I could explain away the furniture moves, the party supplies around the house (the kids’ party IS coming up), but I couldn’t explain why we were making candies so early. I’m happy to report, the party was a success and a SURPRISE!
