The Sweetest of Meetings Happened Again




The second meeting was even better than the first. How can that be possible when the first meeting was so amazing? This time we were so relaxed and comfortable with one another. We shared more and laughed more. Our husbands were with us and they enjoyed the conversation as well. 

We had dinner by the beach, casual and relaxed. Delicious fish and chips by the beach in the sunshine. We watched the sunset over the Pacific. How cool is that? Like last year, the men talked as men do about careers, sports, cars, and more.

Cali and I talked about everything under the sun. We mixed and matched our real names with our blog names during our time together. We shared on a deeper level realizing that our friendship was moving to a new level as we share more. We just could not stop smiling.

Then the two of us had a thought which we thought our husbands would like.......... let's do breakfast in the morning. So the four of us met at a little breakfast place. The men had omelets and Cali and I enjoyed Swedish pancakes. This time the conversation involved all four of us.

More hugs exchanged and we said good-bye. We also said that we would see one another same time next year. We have become the closest of friends.

Thank you, Cali.

    I cannot believe that I gabbed with you for more than 5 hours - and then went back for more the next morning lol. Just shows what a dear kindred spirit you are. ;)
    You are a wonderful big sister to me - and I love that our hubbies not only sweetly indulge us, they also enjoy the time together too. I am already looking forward to our next get together. ♥
    hugs,
    Cali
