I live very close to one of my favorite Vineyards, and I have dreamed of spending time up there enjoying the view, eating lunch, and sipping crisp cold whites while talking everything under the moon with great friends.
I'm not really sure if what we talked about was worth any kind of merit, but to sit and shoot the breeze about anything and everything felt like an emotional release. Laughing a lot, sharing our hopes and dreams, down to our favorite food, and TV chefs, covers so much of my communication tank I have stored away for special times like this. My husband is awesome, and I can talk to him about anything, but can he relate to my conversation about post nursing, and why the girls really do head south for good. How bloating makes me irritable, or what it means to have the entire house clean when I get home. Being with the girls is fancy, and I can be the royalty that I am to myself, and to God. We have each other to share the graceful beauties we are, to be dainty, and wear those big heals for heaven sake.
While this is more than likely a once a year wonder, coming up here and feeling close to glory, Is something I will cherish with every friend I'm given, even if it's only for 3 hours on a Wednesday afternoon, eating amazing food, a having Girl Talk.
Thank you my friends some close, some far. You are dear to me and I love the special friendship just you and I have. Thank you for listening in girl talk moments and keeping it lite, and full of laughter; and when my hearts been heavy, thank you for your compassion, and encouraging words.
