And more friends...

Wednesday was a great day, indeed. Ric and I had lunch with three friends, and it was fun for all of us to have a chance to catch up. Then, last night, we drove up to Temecula to have dinner with Russ and Trevor. Wow. Their house is beautiful, of course, but the best part was relaxing in the living room after dinner. It's easy to get so wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, but the truth is there is no better way to celebrate the holidays than with the simple company of friends. Sitting in that big, comfy leather chair, warm coffee in hand, watching Megan perform her "dances with blue ribbon" ballet, I felt so relaxed and content. Good friendships can do that for you.
