I can’t believe June is almost over! I’ve had a wonderful time working on Rafe and Juliet’s anniversary party at Boudreaux’s restaurant on the Isle of Grace, and today we’re serving dessert. Luckily, it’s one of my favorites and a southern classic: Hummingbird Cake.

Juliet Montfort ~ “It’s been such a lovely evening and even though it’s getting late, the sun still hovers over the river despite the flood of fireflies that’ve appeared. After dinner we danced for hours, drank champagne and sweet tea, and now it’s time to cut the cake.

I was so surprised with all of this–the party, the vow renewal, my girlfriends decorating Boudreaux’s–and I’m still so overwhelmed. Before Rafe returned, I spent eight lonely years struggling to build a life not realizing that I didn’t have to do it alone. And now that Rafe is back, and my life is filled with friends and family again, I’m so grateful. Yet, I’m also sad.

At the time, during those eight years, I had no idea how alone I really was. While that was probably a good and necessary thing at the time, now I realize all that I’ve missed and I’m determined never to let that happen again. Tonight I’m surrounded by those I love, and those who love me, and that makes me the luckiest woman in the world. Now I know I’ll never be alone again.”
