I swear, it has been the coldest, rainiest, gloomiest spring in the Pacific Northwest. I heard somewhere that it has actually been the crummiest spring since 1990.
This weekend was actually the first weekend where the weather was sunny and nice enough for shorts! I needed this!
This last week I have had a bit more time to spend with friends. A week ago, I went to a cocktail and food pairing tasting at a local restaurant with my friend Shelley. There were seven courses of mini-cocktails, paired with delicious food! It was a bit of a splurge, but it was so much fun!
Then Wednesday night was steak night with Jena and Audrey – so delicious and great conversation!
And Friday, I got together with Shelley, Tiffany, Toni, Danielle and Barb! Six of us for great conversations and amazing Italian food. It was definitely more social outings than I have had in a week for quite awhile. It was much needed.
Then I topped it off with morning walks on both days, and Mom and I went to the matinee showing of Downton Abbey today! Wonderful movie – they did a great job with it! What a great week!
