An Elegant Evening ~

...with my Prince Charming.  

It was a night of total splendor, festive glory, and fine art.  My handsome artist husband and I were invited guests to this exquisite holiday gala in the Court of Honor at the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco.

For two souls who love art, this was a dream come true.  An entire evening devoted to celebrating the artistic masters of our past as well as  present-day artists...the museum galleries were ours to peruse, linger and enjoy.  With cocktails in hand, we mingled among the elite, but mostly we giggled and gasped at our good fortune to be included in such a grand evening.  

A dinner fit for a king was served by candlelight, an orchestra enticed all to join on the dance floor, and memories to last a lifetime were made underneath a tent draped in sparkling elegant evening indeed.


  1. I just adore the photographs, it looks just fabulous, as do you both!

  9. Mel,

    I have no doubt that your evening at the gala will bring smiles to your face even into your older years. You both look just as exquisite as the gala, and though you two were giggling at your good fortune to be among such elite company, I imagine your youth, grace, and beauty turned quite a few heads! What a special night for a husband and wife-a an enchanting location, an orchestra, the dance, the wine, the art, and the two of you enjoying each other's company.
    Thank you for sharing your special evening with us.
