French Cafe Therapy

Last night I celebrated my best friend’s birthday at a French Cafe in town.  We had reservations for five at 6:45 PM.   We gathered at a big round table by the window and enjoyed chatting about everything and about nothing.   An artsy black chandelier provided muted lighting, and a talented pianist tickled the ivories in the background.  For appetizers, we ordered a yummy brie pastry and a pistachio encrusted brie.  We decided to ask the waitress to bring us extra plates, and we passed them around the table adding a sample of our main course for each friend.   I ordered the seafood crêpe, but after sampling my “goodie plate,” I declared that Ellie’s beef bourguignon was “the winner.”  For dessert, we shared chocolate decadence, bananas foster, and some gooey eclair thing that melted in your mouth.  Before the night was over, we pulled out our phones and started sharing horrifying 80’s pictures of ourselves from our Facebook pages (I used to have a mullet, so I won the prize for “scariest hair.”)

On Monday nights, I am a member of a sisterhood of bloggers called Soli Deo Gloria.  Jen, our fabulously fun leader, encouraged us to VLOG this week on the theme of “fun.”  My girls’ night out definitely provided the inspiration I needed for the following video:

   “…those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.”

Proverbs 11:25b, NLT

Q4U:  How do you have fun and refresh your spirit?

My one-word focus for the year is “fruitilicious.”  Find out what that means here.

Thanks for stopping by!  I would love to connect with you on FacebookTwitter, or Pinterest.
