Second Valentine’s Dinner with Friends

Dinner party1I love throwing a dinner party, cooking for loved ones. Tonight I cooked for my dearest friends and their partners since it might be the only time we all are free. I have only a couple of months until I go to Korea. One friend’s parents are coming here in March and staying for over a month. Another friend’s family comes over to Perth as well in April. And we might be moving to Melbourne anytime soon so I wanted to have a nice dinner with them before we all get busy. I thoroughly enjoyed great company tonight. Love you all xxx
