Lord V and I went out and had a post Christmas dinner with friends at their house last night.
You know the Italian movies where they show the families all bustling around the kitchen and dining table, laughing and talking to and over each other in booming decimals while shoving down delicious food with wine chasers?
It was like that.
And it was fantabulously wonderful.
We've all known each other for so long that we move in a rhythm that is family.
We tease. We laugh. We hug. We celebrate accomplishments. We commiserate and share losses.
And for a girl who grew up where family meant something to be avoided, every time I am with my friends, I feel some empty space inside me fill.
They are my treasures :)
