All in all, the party was a great time. I know I said this already while speechifying at the party, but I (we) owe so much to everyone who was there. A party just isn't a party without great guests, and we had the best. I'm feeling pretty darn lucky right now to know all of you.
And, even though I swore up and down while planning this thing that I would never do it again, it seems now that the pain was worth it.
