Life has been full with wonderful heartfelt deep talks, laughter, lots of reflections as the seasons change. That’s another thing about seasons, seasons change and so do we.
I invited some friends we usually see on a weekly basis over the other night – we’ve been traveling and we haven’t seen them for so long. I missed them and was thankful Friday it worked out for them to come over so we could catch up so much on life – and I was even more stoked that we could light a fire pit. I even checked for the burn days. As we sat there passing around the bruschetta board I brought attention to the fact that we were all sitting outside around a fire with long pants and not sweating. “We survived Phoenix summers! Hallelujah!”
I popped into a few favorite stores and picked up some hay bales that were on crazy sale, cozy blankets, and grabbed some lights from inside and outside the house – the candles aren’t real lights but the tea lights are. It reminds me I need to grab some more fire starters. Ordered bruschetta from our favorite local restaurant and had it delivered because that’s how I roll.
It was a great night of food as we passed around the bruschetta board – didn’t need plates! Wine glasses were kept full and you too can celebrate the grape this International Merlot Month by drinking merlot, sharing it on social and using the hashtag #MerlotMe. Check out MerlotMe.com
I love sitting around and talking about life. Every moment I am with my friends I have this thought – my mind wanders when people are having conversation and I look around, it’s almost like I take it in and think to myself, how blessed are we to have friendships. What a joyful part of life, such a gift to enjoy the company of friends and can make memories on a fall night.
