January marks our calendar as the first month of the year. A time for new promise – new hope … perhaps new beginnings. A good friend of mine has a birthday a little more than a week after mine. Since we became adults, it’s been a tradition of ours to go out and celebrate our born days over a tasty meal.
What makes this occasion a real treat is not the $40-50 plate; not the shared birthday; not the location; nor the fact that we can get away from the kids for an evening (though that helps). Simply hanging out with friends and exchanging laughter is amusement enough.
I know that hanging out with friends over dinner is nothing new. Many people do it more regularly than me I’m sure. Consider this blog nothing more than a reminder. This year, make the time to enjoy a meal with your close ones. Do you have parents that haven’t been out in a while? A couple that you know is going through something? A sibling or neighbor that could use a good laugh? Invite them out to dinner and let the good times roll.
This year, no matter the economy, no matter how busy you are, take the initiative to find some good eats with good friends. Oh, and There’s Always Room for Dessert. LOL.
