Four Girls Gather

This past weekend my friend Dawn flew into town from Massachussets for a girls gathering. Dawn lived her oh-so-long ago and her presence is missed! It was a much needed time for four dear friends to catch up IN PERSON, instead of ON LINE for a fly by weekend. Dawn's plane landed at 8pm Friday. Our friend Heidi was on hand to picked her up and whisk her straight to our gal pal Jesse's house where we reunited for delicious appetizers and drinks.

The next morning I hosted a brunch for friends. The invite was for 10 am. Turns out that is early for individuals who don't have small kids....

Below are Dawn and Dean.

Friends...near and far.

Saturday afternoon Dawn, Jesse and Heidi went shopping. I caught up with them at Arbor Lakes in Maple Grove just in time for a happy hour cocktail, then we cruised downtown. We had a room at the Marriott City Center and reservation at Bar La Grassa at 9 pm. Jesse called for about 3 weeks straight, hoping for a cancelation, to get us in at the metro's hot new dining destination.

Here we are all dolled up & out for drinks after dinner.

The weekend was a fast and furious, too short, and each of us were tired in our own cities, at our own jobs on Monday morning, but of course it is worth it to spend time together.
