Sunrise Parties!

Through late teens, college, early 20s, most of us party and I was certainly no less- heralding a new day in as I went off to grab a shut-eye was rather usual for me.

However, as time gets on, life goes on, the people you party with become more immersed in practical lives as do you yourself often, energy levels drop and it seems easier to just reduce seeing a sunrise before sleep.

This week feels special- 2 nights, not 1 but 2! I would normally consider myself lucky to get 6 nights a year of such parties, VERY lucky actually so to get 2 in the course of 5 days is pretty epic and encouraging to realise I ain’t all that old!

Both parties, very different- one was a big gang who went out dancing and ended up at a house party with decks and all while the other was movies, chats, fire and dancing in the jammies… ah life, you beauty.

It’s good to go for a snooze as the birds chirp and the sun rises.
It’s great to get the system out of whack, even if it takes longer to fall back into a rhythm.
It’s amazing to realise I am surrounded by some very beautiful people.

Ah life, you beauty 🙂

Oct 15 Tuesday: A Brilliant Moment

Do you remember the first party you ever really threw?
The first party you organised?
Not one done by the parents, but planned, catered, invited by you?

I do. I had forgotten but somehow a friend of mine sent me a mail after ages reminding me of the days I used to throw epic parties (I say days, ‘cos they are not the norm as they used to be- yeah, getting oldER)… and I realised it started off young- I had the traffic lights, strobe lights, big amp & speakers, smoke machine, tonnes of goodies and snuck in some alcohol too… all in all, it was my first and led me to organise many events in my many adobes over the years- from girly cocktail nights in jammies to back garden picnics to holi parties to Diwali parties and whatever else one may want….

So go on, find an excuse and host a party, will ye? 😉
