Anyway, to look at the bright side...which in my mind makes much more sense than being any more bummed...we got together with friends last night for dinner and martinis! I took the martini-makings and we had pistaschio martinis; they were delicious.
This is a photo of me and one of my best friends. She's Portia and we have been friends since the kids were in elementary school. They have 5 grown children and all of them (except one) live nearby.
