girl time

When was the last time you had the girls over for a visit?  Friday night I did just that.  Nothing fancy, just a few appetizers and a couple of bottles of supermarket wine. 

 It can be easy to lose touch during the summer with schedules a lot looser.  It was so nice to just sit and chat without time constraints and busy agendas. 

I don’t know about you but I really need my girl time and always have.  It’s funny how the subjects have changed over the years, from newly married young women exchanging recipes and trying to figure out how a man thinks…to young moms trying to tame unruly toddlers and then headstrong teens… and now somewhere between grandbabies and decorating we ended up on the subject of aches and pains and sleeping schedules (ours not the babies)!

 If you haven’t met with your girls in a long time, send a quick text, email or pick up the phone and give them a ring a-ling-ling.  Don’t worry about how your house looks or what you’ll wear…

It doesn’t matter what you pour or what you serve…

Just the fact that you took the time to invite them into your home for a little bit of conversation and encouragement is more than enough to offer.


  1. Good advice! I had 3 women friends for dinner last month, the first time 2 of them had been here. We had a wonderful time and plan to get together again at a different house soon.

  2. That is such good advice - it's so easy to get caught up with work and family and not make time for girlfriends too! and there's nothing quite like girl talk whatever age the girls are!

  3. Looks like you had fun with your girl time.

  4. I agree. There's nothing better than time with friends. Plus you get to use some of the pretty dishes :)

  5. Love this idea! And your red and white bowl. Do we know what men think now?

  6. I love girl time and just friend time in general. Now that I am retired, I miss the social interactions! Lovely photos - great vignette.
