Grateful for Christmas Party

During the past year my husband has worked for a large company. Last month we received the invitation to their Christmas party – a dinner on a boat – to celebrate the festive season. I was pleased to receive the invitation and agreed immediately to accompany my husband. What a treat it was to go out and experience a place we had not been to before.

When we entered the steamboat, we were greeted with a pleasant sight. I liked the casual and yet festive settings of the place where we were going to eat.

I loved the Christmas tree that dominated the one corner of the space. The lights on the tree sparkled and added to the simple, and yet effective, way the dining room had been decorated. The red baubles on the tree matched the colour of the table settings. When we chose a seat, I made sure that I could see the tree from my seat. My photo, unfortunately, is not a very good one – though my close-up of the tree’s ornaments did turn out a little better.

I sat next to the window so that while we were chatting and eating I could look out through the window at the lights of the city.

I loved the Christmas tree as well that dominated the one corner of the space. While I was taking pictures, my husband could not resist taking one of me. 🙂 I enjoyed the evening. We ate a simple buffet, chatted, and did a little dancing. Even though we had met because of dancing, my husband and I had not gone out to dance for 17 years. It felt good to move our dancing feet and dig deep down into our memories for the steps that we had learnt such a long time ago. This week I am grateful for the different dinner experience that I had on Saturday; as well as the chance to dance again with my husband.

What have you been grateful for this week?

Last week Lavender Ladi was grateful for the snow effect on WordPress.

  1. What a lovely Christmas party. On a boat and the view outside looks amazing. So sweet of you and your husband to get up and dance. I’m sure everyone was clapping and cheering the two of you on 🙂


  2. Visiting your blog, of which I have been negligent! I am glad you got to enjoy yourselves, and to dance and sit back and smell the roses together always makes life a little stronger. Over thanksgiving, my wife, and I and our 2o year old went to Galveston to visit my oldest daughter. We had not taken a trip for a while, but so enjoyed the Gulf, and daily seeing the waves kissed the beach each morning and night, and also embracing the sunrises and the sunsets. We had a wonderful time! Thanks for sharing!
