It's so hard to pry me out of my home. I don't know why; maybe it's because I've lost my adventurous spirit, or simply packed it away in lavender and cedar and tissue. Maybe it takes too much energy; heavens know I frequently feel emotionally sapped. Maybe it's just the shyness that it seems will plague me all my days.

Last night I mustered the spirit, the energy, the courage to venture out, and I'm so very glad I did. It was Girl's Night Out at Cat's, a last gathering before she is away to camp and the rest of us dive into our own summer ventures. It was a small group. It was a wonderful group. I sat cross legged on the floor, alternately drinking wine and water, marvelling at these women: fierce, smart, gorgeous, funny. Marvelling that I was a part of this group. So fine was the company, so delightful (and, betimes, intense) the conversation that I completely lost track of time. I made it home a bit after 2 in the morning. hee!

On the way home, I listened to Vienna Teng, and this was the song playing when I started the car. Couldn't have been more appropriate.
I feel: lovedloved

I hadn't known how very much I needed that. My soul was thirsty, and y'all were cool, sweet water. *loves!*

I wouldn't have traded Saturday night for the world. Girlfriends fullful things that nobody else on the planet can. I was SO very happy that you came (and stayed) out! Looking forward to doing it again! ::squish::
