finally Friday | looking forward

The beginning of the week was amazing; yesterday, not so much. Work is a bit stressful these days. But that happens. And even though tomorrow is a working Saturday I am looking forward to the holiday weekend. TGIF

finally Friday | let the celebration begin!

May is my favorite month of the year. Warm but not too hot weather. Longer days. Our anniversary. My birthday. What's not to love?
I am super lucky in that the hubs always plans something special for my day. This year some friends are unable to attend so they invited us to dinner last night to start celebrating early.

My goal moving forward is to keep better friends with friends who are genuine and low drama. These boys are so sweet and we love them to death. They are actually getting married in July - wedding outside of Santa Fe. Can't wait!

The past 2 weeks have been super busy and stressful at work so I am happy for the next few days off. TGIF!

friendship | reconnecting

One of my goals for the month of May (hello there May!) is to reconnect with friends, both near and far. I am so guilty of taking the people I most love for granted and being lazy about our friendships. After a long day of work the last thing I usually want to do is talk on the phone, but writing a letter or even sending a text doesn't take much time at all. And who doesn't love to receive a little happy mail every now and again?

In the spirit of that we had dinner with dear BC, whom we haven't seen in months. He had a major life change recently - quit his job of 18 years and is now in what he terms, "semi-retirement." He plans of taking the summer off to enjoy life and decide what he wants to do next. What a great night we had, talking, drinking wine, catching up, eating yummy food and reconnecting. And all it took was a simple text from me asking if he wanted to have dinner. A little effort for a big reward. 

Now to decide who is next on the list :)
