donna's surprise

On Friday night, we all gathered at my Mom's house for a huge surprise celebration: Donna's 50th Birthday. With most of the catering being taken care of by our all time favorite sushi place, Little Tokyo, the house was transformed into the ultimate party hall. Donna's face lovingly plastered over any and all surfaces, fantastic lanterns dressed the table, and amazingly good food and drinks were passed and poured all night, without stop.

Surprise parties, or parties in general, should really be thrown more often.

Happy Birthday, Donna. We love you so much.
