Earlier this week I had made a lunch date with a friend to a restaurant I had never been to for this weekend. I love trying new places and it’s pretty easy to do where we live.
Saturday came and the weather was awful, but that wasn’t going to keep me from a long-awaited get together! It seems these days that any friend gatherings have to be planned out ahead of time, usually weeks in advance. I shouldn’t mind it, because I like having a schedule, but I also miss college days where there were so many friends around to hang out anytime. But let’s be honest, college isn’t the real world in some ways, but it is some really good memories!
Even though I showed up late, my friend was forgiving and we had a nice meal together. Beignets and burgers…yum! Then we went to another new to me coffee shop, which was nice. It was great to catch up with a friend who I hadn’t seen in awhile and it got me out of the house on a rainy day. I find joy in getting together and feel reconnected to friends and the world around me when I do this.
