A Tequila, Tacos, Flowers and Friends Kind of Party

My baby sister is the only person I know who says at 7 A.M. “Let’s have a party today at 5” and at 5 P.M. we have a party. A  tequila, tacos, flowers and friends kind of party.

Originally planned as an annual little get-together with my girlfriends from high school, this reunion morphed into a full-on shebang! Dani ordered a feast from Chipotle, my nephew pre-mixed margaritas, and the sun had just begun to settle on another gorgeous Seattle day when our friends began to arrive.

It’s the most beautiful thing to see the shine of love in the eyes of your friends. You know they are happy to see you and they know you are happy to see them. Happy is such a good thing! And being that Dani is such a magnificent people connector, several people who didn’t know each other beforehand expanded their circle of life by making arrangements to get together in the future. Hopefully, new friendships will develop.

It’s always a joy to see my BBs from high school. These are lifelong friendships–something that can never be replaced and I am so very, very grateful for each and every one of them. I am blessed.

Before dusk, the remaining revelers put on their dancing shoes and we all gathered in Dani’s living room and tore up the floor, some of us with tacos in hand and all with tequilas. It was that kind of party.

Have a good start in the week, everybody. I hope you too have friendships to cherish.
