11848408864_246aa9182a_oin honor of the good fortune of having people read the blog for so long and following along with our journey, i thought i’d share the fortunes we provided in homemade fortune cookies during our 4th annual cocktail party last saturday. the theme of our party was good luck and we were lucky to have so many friends join us. in addition to the fortune cookies, we made this cake with a penny inside and had clay wishbones for folks to pull.

here are the fortunes:
