We’re privileged to have sunny days in our forecast right now. We decided to head out Friday afternoon for an early supper out at a local beach to jump the gun on the spring break crowd. It was warm enough to go barefoot and the sun felt so fantastic on our skin. We’re at a turning point in the year where I expect to see a lot more sun than we have so far this year.
While no one really talked about it, the evening was a bit bittersweet. Our dear friends are moving before the end of the month. We are all sad to see them go, but are hopeful they’ll enjoy their new home as much as they enjoyed living here. I’m especially sad to lose such friends that mark our lives (especially my children’s) in such a positive and thoughtful way.
Sitting around the fire, there were a couple varieties 0f hot dogs, bison burgers, chicken tikka masala, a green and a fruit salad, quinoa chocolate cake (which I need the recipe for) and crunchy cookies.
It was a whole lot beachy fun. The kids ran barefoot in and out of the tide line. Not since summer last year have the kids been able to run bare legged and sweater free. It can only get better from here.
The next time we come to this beach for an evening supper over the fire, we may have a new baby with us! My dear friend is very nearly finished her second pregnancy. I can’t wait to meet this new little one.
