We gathered at a local pub listened to a local jazz band where we shared some stories and had a few drinks.
It was such fun meeting up with people that I worked with for 17 years at a former school.
We shared a lot of history working in an inner city school...challenges with the students made us bond together tightly.
Most are now retired leading full and active lives...
Retirement looks good on them, in fact I think they looked younger.
Maybe it's because they are doing what they feel passionate about and the fact that volunteering has become a regular commitment in their weekly round.
No frown lines creased their brows just happy laugh lines and lots of animated faces as they related all their news.
Topics ranged from travel to books and grandchildren, photos were shared.
I have not seen some of these gals for years but it felt like it was just yesterday the way we picked up where we had left off.
Ease, comfort, long lost friendships...
I wore my Moebius shawl
with an all black ensemble.
black long tunic V neck T- shirt
Me Too snaffle animal print flats
loose garter stitch
made this knitting project a breeze
the alpaca yarn is soft and light
but warm and cozy.
I wore my hair up in a half up do
letting a few curly strands fall as they may
pearls seemed appropriate
and of course my everyday bangles
I wore some eye liner and wore a taupe eye shadow.
Evening events and smokey eyes seem to go together.
A quick lick of peachy lip gloss and I was good to go.
Dressed up for after 5 at work is not my usual look
because my principal commented on my attire!
Perhaps I should wear eye make up and pearls more often
and pretend there's a party every day!
Have a Wonderful Weekend!
