Married to a lefty for 43 years, I’ve learned to make sure the seats on my left side and when he helps set the table, it’s totally normal that the fork is on the right side and knife on the left. Adapting is what righties and lefties do under the same roof!
The countdown continues. The Extravaganza is just 12 days away. All guarantees are firm and menus selected. We are excited we are on countdown. On Thursday, I was on site, creating final menus, layouts, etc. It will be a wowsa when all see the fantastic foyer we have for our schmoozing and gathering. We are excited as we map out our event.
