Long anticipated, the big day is finally here! Champagne and Chianti are chilling in the refrigerator. Live Basil scents the air. Fresh flowers beautify the table. Everything is ready.
This afternoon our friend Anselm will don his chef's cap and prepare an Italian meal with Nathaniel, Emma, and Anna. Our friend Mickey is bringing two operas on DVD: Cavalleria Rusticana and Tosca. The tentative plan is to dine first, then watch Cavalleria Rusticana, then adjourn to the living room for some waltzing, then watch Tosca and finish the evening with dessert and espresso.
I'll update with pictures late tonight or tomorrow.
