|can you see my pants blowing in the wind? I thought I'd be blown off the rooftop!|
When I knew I was going to CT, I immediately emailed Julia and L. There was a third person I also desperately wanted to meet (she is on my 40 things list) so I got brave, reached out and she was also very keen.
Anyway, Julia emailed me at one point and said, "wait, are 3 friend dates not going to be too much for you?" and I said, "it may be but I'm doing it anyway". :)
And I think it was absolutely the right thing to do.
It kept me busy, out of trouble and focussed so I didn't miss my loves at home too much.
Each of the evenings was very different from the others and together, they were the perfect combination for me. Seriously.
So Julia was number 1. We've met before in 2012 (a day I took some gorgeous photos of the winter sunset :)) and we email daily so we literally slipped back into our friendship as if I saw her last week.
It was a wonderful evening of talking, laughing, deep connection and delicious food (I might have groaned when I tasted the first mouthful of Thai Mussamen Curry at my favourite CT restaurant, Chef Pon's Asian Kitchen).
They had to basically kick us out. When we looked up, all the tables were cleaned off, and they were mopping the floor.....
We quickly got the waitress to take a few photos to document the evening, and we were on our way.
I wish you lived closer, Julia. Thank you again for a lovely evening - it was exactly what I needed :)
The outside photos (not the rooftop ones) were taken at about 6:50. Can you believe it's still that light?!
How are your friend dates going so far this year?
My one friend reminded me we haven't seen each other since Nov. That's got to be remedied soon.
