friday evening feast in Sarah's beautifully exquisite sunroom.
It's interesting how some nights with friends are good, and some are just spot-on fantastic. I realize I am sometimes guilty of making every night sound spot-on fantastic on the blog, but Friday evening was truly grand. 

There was delicious food (roasted asparagus with lemon & goat cheese, this absolutely delicious, mind-blowing herb lasagna, and home-made oreos), drinks (sweet tea flavoured vodka mixed with lemonade - ah!) and a slightly humorous game (found at a thrift store for $1.50, so no judgment please).

But really the best part of the evening was talking and laughing for hours. I love when conversations delve into the deep, real, meaningful stuff of life. I am so truly blessed to have great friends who appreciate good food and conversation - and also happen to have fabulous summer sunrooms.
