You Only Live Once - #YOLO

Life is a beautiful magnificent thing, even to a jellyfish. ~Charles Chaplin
First I want to say, I was instructed by one Ms. Nicole Piper to NOT write a blog entry about her birthday party. When will she learn, telling me to do something won't make it happen. Here goes...
#YOLO, yep that was the theme of my sister's fortieth birthday celebration that took place this past Friday. On a side note, #YOLO was not my idea! I just kept the theme going. She told me she wanted everything #YOLO. So I gave it to her... on the save-the-dates, invites, programs and decor.
It's true, her actual birthday was March 16th Happy Birthday Aunt Nikki! The Big 40!. So why such a lapse in time between birthday and party? Simply, the venue in which Nicole wanted her party, Jammin' Java's, was booked until this past Friday.
It was a night packed filled with a comedian, Matty Litwack, who I guess was a physicist turned comedian. Perfect for that group of engineers! Then, Todd Wright played guitar and sang the night away, until the dancing begun.
The party was dedicated to her best friend, Dr. Jennifer (Smith) Galbraith (Blue Skies Dr. Jennifer (Smith) Galbraith) investigation still ongoing) who passed away last year. In lieu of gifts, she asked everyone to donate to the Women Giving Back - A HomeAid Northern Virginia Program. Great idea! What a perfect way to celebrate life, by helping others live a real life.
I'll hand it to my sister, she does know how to throw a party! It was well organized and all details were covered.
