Hello friends! Today is a fun post because I am sharing scenes from a girls’ night I hosted over the weekend at Heaven AKA Rancho Valencia. We have all been traveling like crazy throughout December, and I wanted to ring in the New Year together now that we are all back in town for a brief moment and celebrate our friendship. It can be easy to let girl time fall by the wayside when schedules are busy and we all have boyfriends, fiancés, and husbands. I thought a late afternoon cocktail hour to get settled and catch up, followed by dinner, a sleepover, and brunch would be the perfect way to power down together in the most relaxing place on earth and remember how lucky we are to have such great friendships in our lives.
Sophie, Sivan, Kaitlynn, Belen, Becca, and Ali all showed up at the guest house on property, the Hacienda for cocktail hour and appetizers. It was pouring rain, so we cozied up by the fire and chatted while getting ready to go to the wine cave for dinner. The wine cave is a stunning little nook made of brick with a wine cellar on one wall that feels like an underground secret room. The table was overflowing with pink and white roses, candles, and a personalized menu that I had created for us tied with a pink ribbon.
After our amazing meal and lots of rosé, we headed back to the Hacienda for dessert, nightcaps, coffee, and girl talk by the fire. It was a truly magical night and I am already looking forward to the next one!
In the next post I will show you our brunch!
How often do you plan girl time with your friends?
