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.
