|Poolside with Bette's and Steve's Guests|
On Sunday, we were honored to be invited to Steve's big birthday party! We've recently become friends with Steve and Bette. We're all members of the L.A. Conservancy and attended tours together, as well as other events. After talking with Bette for a bit, we realized that we grew up together and went to the same schools! Bette is a year younger than me. I vaguely remember her from the old days. Of course, we know ALL the same people! It's always fun to re-meet people and re-new friendships after decades!
Steve's birthday party was held at their lovely mid-century modern home in the Hollywood Hills. The weather was pleasant and their back yard was perfect to handle ALL of the people present. The delicious food and drink, the garden setting, decorations and flowers were so festive.
My old friend, Doug "Legacy" Lacy provided the music for the party. During Doug's break, while we were eating dinner, the mariachis descended! Wow! Talk about a lively group. The mariachi band took requests and serenaded the party.

We ran into a few old friends and acquaintances and met many new people.
There was scrumptious birthday cake, speeches about Steve and lots of laughs. Needless to say, we had a wonderful time at this warm and friendly party!
|Happy Birthday, Steve!|
