Thank you to everyone who attended our most successful Homemade Holiday Shorts yet!
There was plenty of great conversation, food, drink, and most importantly the most entertaining holiday stories to date. A special thanks once again to our Master of Ceremonies Rob Zapple, to our charismatic readers Tony Rivenbark, Rhonda Bellamy and Katherine Rudeseal, to Milner's Cafe for the catering, and to our wonderful holiday musicians John Golden and Catesby Jones. We hope you had as lovely a time as we did! Check out some of the photos from this glorious night in the slideshow above.
