We got together with our friends, Gary & Vivien and John & Janice on Saturday night to celebrate Gary's birthday. The weather was beautiful. We ate on the patio (not something you can usually do the first Saturday in Colorado), the food was delicious. We played dominoes. We laughed. We laughed a lot. We laughed about really dumb things, like new phones and salad spinners and hamsters and belt buckles. It was good. I know it was what I needed and I think the others did too. We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends.
