I had wonderful dinner dates this Tuesday: Nikole and Celine. It was my first time meeting Nikole, and I have to admit that I was a little slower to respond to her tea or coffee suggestion (made in the summer!) than I should have been because I was intimidated and shy! So silly. I feel as though I have known both of them for a very long time. It's nice when that happens.
We ate delicious food (at Swan; they let us sit in our booth for close to four hours!) & we chatted the evening away. I was completely fascinated by the stories they told me. I'm at a point in my life where I want nothing more than to surround myself with positive and inspiring girls: I am lucky enough that, essentially, I am doing just that these days. I often think about how much I love where I live. There is so much beauty here, and I usually find it in the people I know.
They were both sweet to bring thoughtful little presents: the bangle was from Nikole, from the Herriott Grace line, and the pretty golden garland was from Celine.
Thank you, Nikole, thank you, Celine. The evening was a highlight of my wintery week.
