Tonight we had dinner with some old friends and met some new friends. What fun! We haven't done that in a long time! Our lives are so busy with kids, work, chores, etc... that we have not taken the time to just sit and visit with other grown ups. It was fun just sitting around the table talking about nothing in particular....very relaxing. Our kids are now at an age where they don't need to be on our lap and they can play unsupervised for a decent amount of time. Occasionally they would check in with us, tell us something funny, then run off again.
Life is good. Sometimes you just have to slow down, leave the laundry and smell the coffee.
