I've seen Julie in Montreal, and visited Leanne last time the kids and I were in New Brunswick three years ago, but I haven't seen Shari in about 9 years, and the four of us haven't really had a chance to hang out without husbands and children since the early days of university.
This year seemed like a good one to remedy that. I said it was a joint birthday celebration (hence the bracelets) - but some of us (won't say who, Julie) are a little sensitive about our age and don't do birthdays, so we just "got together."
And shopped for books. And ate cheesecake. And drank wine. And ate dinner. And talked. Until 2am.
And I coveted Julie's naked fairy that sits on top of her piano.
Brilliant evening. We should do it again sometime!
