A Lighter Fare

Since my last post was kinda deep, here’s a light update for the weekend:

I’ve had a great last couple of days and have been able to see and catch up with a lot of friends. Thursday night was a bittersweet get-together and farewell for two friends who will be starting a new chapter of their lives in Florida next week. They will be greatly missed! Friday, I had the chance to chat with a couple of my favorite lady friends over coffee, then celebrated another pal’s 30th birthday at Bristol Seafood Grill in Kansas City.

A great time was had by all! Misty, the lovely birthday lady, is in the center with the red scarf.

I’ve really enjoyed the social time with so many wonderful people. When I get busy it’s pretty easy for me to hunker down and not hang out much, so I was glad for the fun reasons to see some folks I haven’t had the time to see lately. Well, haven’t had the time / haven’t made the time. I mentioned a couple of days ago that I’ve been setting goals — I’ve decided to add a new goal about making time to hang with my buds. I have a unbeatable group of people I can call my friends and I want to make spending time with them a priority. They all have such wonderful spirits and I learn something from each of them. To all of you who will read this – I love you and value your friendship more than I can say. Thank you for sharing your lives with me.

In other news, J & I have the opportunity to have an unbelievable date night tonight to see … The Avett Brothers! I am SO excited. If you haven’t heard them, I’d encourage you to check ’em out. They make fantastic music with really super lyrics.

There’s a darkness upon me that’s flooded in light
In the fine print they tell me what’s wrong and what’s right
And it comes in black and it comes in white
And I’m frightened by those that don’t see it

When nothing is owed or deserved or expected
And your life doesn’t change by the man that’s elected
If you’re loved by someone, you’re never rejected
Decide what to be and go be it

There was a dream and one day I could see it
Like a bird in a cage I broke in and demanded that somebody free it
And there was a kid with a head full of doubt
So I’ll scream til I die and the last of those bad thoughts are finally out

There’s a darkness upon you that’s flooded in light
And in the fine print they tell you what’s wrong and what’s right
And it flies by day and it flies by night
And I’m frightened by those that don’t see it

In the fine print they tell me what’s wrong and what’s right

Head Full of Doubt / Road Full of Promise
The Avett Brothers

Here’s wishing y’all a terrific weekend!
