"It had been years in the making, but the day I finally got divorced, my closest friends, who'd seen me through this whole journey, and I decided it was time to manifest the occasion with an incredible party that would celebrate my new beginning,"

 

Once she was able to prove that she had indeed tried to track down her Houdini of a husband - and failed to do so in the process - she was finally granted that glorious divorce.

"Party food was simple, composing of light bites, a meat and cheese platter, fruit and chicken wings. We ate, laughed and danced the night away. It was fantastic.
