I’ve declared Sunday family days, where we try to not schedule anything and to celebrate a day of rest. That is, until friends decide to celebrate life and I have to go with the flow.
Today was such a day. Kelly turned 50 and her friends chose to celebrate today and who was I to say no?
We spent the day up in San Francisco on a gorgeous day. We drove up in two cars and parked along the Embarcadero and the water. We had a delicious and healthy lunch at the Plant on Pier 3. We all enjoyed our time together, sharing conversation and mimosas and wonderful food. Afterwards, we walked along the Embarcadero and through the Ferry Building and along the water. The sun was shining and there wasn’t any wind, so we were all warm and comfortable.
I tried a Blue Bottle Coffee for the first time and enjoyed every sip of the rich, creamy cafe latte.
I loved that we all took the time to enjoy each other’s company and to celebrate our dear friend. Becky was awesome and decorated the cars and brought party favors and bubbles for all the guests.
I have the best of friends and am so thankful for the women in my life. I learned so much and admired all the women and their life choices and hearing about what they are doing and where they are going. Some moms are working, some are looking for work and some are stay at home moms. Some have advanced degrees, some are teachers and one is doctor. And everyone took the time to celebrate our friend and each other. The laundry can wait.
I am thankful and happy to have such cool women in my life and a supportive family that says, “Yes, go and play with your friends and have a good time.” I got home in time to spend time together with my family too, with a delicious BBQ on our outdoor patio. Life is balanced.
Life is good.
