Dinner With Friends

Last night was one of those nights that left my soul feeling full and renewed. A perfect evening with friends that everyone needs now and again.

I met Gracela and Special K (you've read about our adventures before, here) for dinner at a cute little restuarant near Gramercy, Penelope. I've wanted to go here for quite a while to try their well reviewed weekend brunch, but the line has always been around the corner! We got there early enough so only a few tables were occupied, but there was a wait by the time we left. Our waiter gave us our space as we chatted for a good 20 minutes before we even ordered!

The food was delicious, the atmosphere quaint and comfortable, and the company was perfect. We chatted about the past, recent life changes, and our upcoming adventures. It was just one of those nights that could have continued for hours and hours. I think having friends like this is so important for our souls and minds. As much as eating well and being active, having good conversations with friends we can count on are integral to good health. It's especially great when those friends are the same ones who you can enjoy healthy activities with!

I'm so thankful for my friends who inspire me every day.

We must go back again for brunch.

I completely agree- good friends and good conversation are so necessary for a healthy life, not just exercise and diet.

Thanks for the company, Lisa. You have no idea how much I love you! (and Special K)
