If you have followed this blog for a while, you may remember that each year in early November, we gather with friends to collect the funds for a project that is very close to our hearts. Our wine and cheese social was held last Thursday evening at the law offices of our dear friend, Tony Seaton, who quietly started this project on his own more than a decade ago. As some of us learned about what he was doing, we wanted to help. The money donated by our circle of friends provides a winter coat, school clothes, shoes, a toy, and a full, healthy lunch for more than fifty local children in need. The event for the children is held in December.
I wore a long sleeve tunic by Clara Sunwoo, which was a gift from ShopMyFairLady.com here with a low-slung hook belt from Chico’s. The vest is so old I am not sure where I bought it, but I believe it was Saks Off 5th. The pants are the dressy pull-on style from a couple of years ago at Chico’s. The shoe/boots are by French Connection from a couple of years ago. The little handbag is about twenty years old.
Mr. Mickey starts letting his Santa beard grow out in September so that he will look more authentic. That is a huge sacrifice for a man who is so meticulous about his appearance.
Some of the employees of the Law Firm brought their children to visit with Santa for a few moments.
Catching up with my sweet friends is always a joy.
