run.

et, longtime sporty friend of mine

signed up to do a quick 5k this morning

prior to our bookclub brunch

and was surprised to learn

that she was somehow stuck doing a 5-miler

due to a ‘volunteer miscommunication error’

and toughed it out, arriving  on time.

please note the difference in her demeanor, expression, and body language

in the photos

before (above)

still running and realizing the mileage

and

after (below)

arriving at brunch and enjoying a breakfast bud light.

here’s to her mighty spirit.“either you run the day or the day runs you.”

beautiful brunch

and

talking about books

life

and

sports

and

adventures

and

entertainment

and

true crime

politics

and

sharing many laughs

and

friendship

and

good food

and

meeting new and interesting people

 sharing the piñata head

and

in what seemed

much too short a time

everyone was off

in different directions

some

to see flashdance one more time

others

to watch sports

and some

continued the celebration elsewhere

after this wonderful beginning to the day.

met up with some friends for brunch.

waited a long time and caught up on stories.

looked forward to the mimosas and coffee and delicious savory crepes.

as last, they arrived at our table. 

but then. 

our dessert came.

1 minute later.

ice cream, sweet apple filling oozing, delicately wrapped in brown sugar.

tucked inside of the softest of doughs.

melting onto the plate.

we each had the same reaction at the same time.

threw down the gauntlet.

abandoned our food without a look back.

jumped into dessert. 

bliss. 

why we are friends.

we understand each other.

even when no words are spoken.

Absolutely eat dessert first. The thing that you want to do the most, do that.  – Joss Whedon
