It is amazing to witness the strength and love of a family. There is no faking or hiding this kind of emotion, it’s real and it’s contagious. The Karabatsos Family is the kind of family that makes you feel as though you have been part of their lives for years. We could tell right from the start that this day was going to be special.

A large contingent of family and friends joined in the celebration of Patty’s 60th birthday at their home last week.
Everybody was involved. From setting up the grounds to baking fresh quiche this was a family affair.

There were newborns and some folks with a bit more “experience” and all ages in between that blended together to enjoy each other’s company and be a part of the occasion. The food and music were great, even Mother Nature turned it up a notch providing just enough warmth.

Wife, Mother, Sister, Daughter and Friend, Patty has embraced her life and was grateful, gracious, and very much in her element. Her husband George basked in the warmth that the gathering provided.

Although she knew of the event Patty was provided very little information about the details of the day. There were many little surprises, guests who traveled from afar, a live band and a taco stand that kept her on her toes all day long.

This was a party we hated to leave…
