Every now and then, things align just right and a wonderful time is had. One of my closest friends and I had lunch over the holidays at a lovely restaurant and it was warm enough to eat outside. After we ordered, a guy started singing and playing guitar. He was really good and played a lot of songs we both liked. We opened gifts and talked for more than two hours. (We had a lot of catching up to do.) At one point we looked at each other and marveled at how lucky we were to be eating outside in December and listening to beautiful music.
The individual brie and pear pizzas we ordered were perfect too.
Happy 2014, everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday. I really enjoyed the time off…always good to recharge those batteries.
This sounds just absolutely perfect! Happy new year!
It was, Jennie. Thank you!
Welcome back, Carole and Happy 2014 to you. I’m glad you had a great time. What a delicious looking pizza. It sounds like you had a wonderful time.
Thanks so much, Caroline. Lovely to see your comment this morning. I’m slowly getting back into the groove, but we have family visiting this week, so it will take some time to catch up.
I love lunching and then spending an afternoon browsing furniture consignment and antique shops with a dear friend – those times make for special memories !
Sounds wonderful, Susan!
Rub it in, why don’t you!? 🙂 The wind chill is negative 15 here today, and I’m wondering why I don’t live in San Diego.
Happy New Year to you!
PS – what’s under the brie and pear? Is it pesto? Looks delish!
Oops, sorry. 🙂 It’s below zero in our old home town today too. I look at the weather on TV and can hardly believe it. We saw bananas growing outside the other day. Sorry.
I don’t know what was under the brie and pears, but it was creamy and divine.
Usually I prefer colder weather, but the thought of eating outside this time of year makes me wonder why I left California. Of course I was just a kid so I didn’t have any control over that choice.
Happy New Year and I’m happy to hear you had such a nice time.
Same to you, TBM. 🙂 Spring is just around the corner!
