Marking time

Ahhh, dinner with friends. Goofy smiles, good-natured jabs, lots of catching up... hungry hands darting into the fry basket and back again. Good times.
We converged for a pretty bittersweet occasion-- the closing of our favorite cafe in Ithaca-- but tried not to let that darken our mood. Mostly, it was an important time for the three of us gals to get together and eat, laugh, and plan fun times for the summer ahead.

For the first time in our lives, we all had significant others to bring to the table.
(I'm assuming no one's going to be offended by Patrick's completely goofy and good-natured middle finger here. I give him the stink-eye, but it doesn't seem to help.)

We're all in love! I spent a lot of time the other night just sitting and enjoying that simple fact. Conversation, great food (the best), marking the end of an era. And the beginning of a new one, in Ithaca, and for our lives.

lol! What fun y'all had!

Tell Patrick that he is grounded for misbehaving!

PS. Is that the stink eye you are giving him? Looks like luuuuuv to me :-)

Haha, the stink eye starts to lose its effect after a few years. I'm now working on the foreboding tone.

Becky-- Well, yeah, it's a loving stink eye, I guess. I need to work on that.

Amanda-- I feel a foreboding tone workshop coming on. :)

It wouldn't be Patrick without the smart-assery! Isn't it great to watch your friends lives progress as your own does. It's like, sometimes, you forget everyone else moves on, too, not just you...then you catch up and think, cool, we're all growing up! At least that's how I feel.
