Wine & cheese

A gorgeous spread of wine, cheese & fruit at Seth & Stella’s

My friends and I have been indulging ourselves. We play poker, drink beer and eat doritos. We sit at our new favorite outdoor caf&#233, drink coffee and split a slice of chocolate cheesecake. We celebrate the middle of the week with wine, cheese and fresh fruit. And, throughout it all, we share stories, listen to music and laugh until our bellies ache.

Whether we hang out on a weekend or a weeknight, at my place or one of theirs, for a several minutes or a couple hours, I end the night with a smile. I love my little tribe of friends, and I love the time we spend together.

When we grow up and fall into routines, it becomes harder to find the time to get together. But when I do, I get so much joy for such little effort. It’s worth it. I have to remember that.
