Gathering with girlfriends is a cornucopia of goodness. Here are a couple gems from the treasure of last night’s soiree.
- Where we met: Figlio’s.
- What we drank: Michael David Chardonnay and Hahn Pinot Noir.
- What we ate: Polenta Fries and Calamari followed by seafood dinner plates.
- How we solved the world’s woes: Collaborative conversation. And hugs.
The topics we covered were as diverse as the days we each have experienced between our memory making moments when we cross paths. Having forged our friendships in college, celebrated careers and weddings and children and adventures, we raise our glasses with gratitude for the here and now. And salt.
Two salts we praised for flavor and health benefits were Celtic Coarse Light Gray Sea Salt and Himalayan Pink Sea Salt to add minerals, texture and a pinch of panache to the food we enjoy. Salt Works offers a nice guide to artisan salts and offers a selection online. Or check out the food section at T J Maxx for a deal that makes trying something new so much easier.
Onward, we tackled the almighty question of “what do I want to be when I grow up.” For our selves. For our children. For those we advise. A wonderful resource employed by a few became the curio for us all. Aptitude testing is a great adventure that has helped shaped the career paths for our children (and it is never to late to give it a go). And we enjoy the conversation about our strengths, weakness, hopes and dreams.
So the evening wraps up with hugs and promises to keep in touch until we gather again. Girl friends. Women who are changing the world.
