Happy Weekend of Eat!

Years ago, our group of friends decided there needed to be a holiday to brighten up the long stretch of late winter. The days are dreary and cold, and it's a long time between New Year's and Easter, when we drink a lot and eat a lot, respectively. So we created our own holiday, one that dispenses with the formalities of any religious or political trappings, and focuses on the best parts: getting together with our best friends, eating decadent food, drinking as much as we want (during the day-- gasp!), and just hanging out and having a good time. Everyone brings a movie to share, and we watch whatever is brought, no questions or complaints. Oh, and then we do it all again the next day. We dubbed this celebration of food and friends the Weekend of Eat, and it's always the last weekend in February. I invite all my friends around the globe to celebrate the Weekend of Eat with their loved ones-- it's all of the fun, and none of the obligation, of your typical holiday.

This wonderful picture was put together by a very creative trio who make magic with the camera-- my friend Chad, my sister Melanie, and my brother-in-law Andy. I'm sure I'll be sharing more of their work in the future.


  1. What a wonderful tradition...I'm going to see if I can get this started here. Of course, in Arizona, we'll probably be out barbequeing and sunbathing. Enjoy your friends and family always!!

  2. Have a perfect weekend. Just don't get any spaghetti sauce in your camera.

  3. Sounds like a wonderful idea and a fun time. I like the photo work, too.

  4. "An offer you can't refuse" Love it.
    Go and enjoy.

  5. Well, without knowing about this, we've been doing pretty much the same this weekend!
