My favorite moments have been spent with my friends. It really doesn’t matter what the activity is or where it’s located. Sharing laughter with those that know you the most, is priceless. Sharing secrets with people who you know will place them in “the vault”. People that know your flaws, but love you anyway.
The joy of true friendships is a treasure. If you don’t already have these friends, go find them now! It is important to remember a couple of things:
– if you want a genuine friend, you have to be one
– honesty is always the best policy, even when it hurts
– if you choose poorly, toss ’em back
– open your heart
I am always happy to spend time with my friends. Time spent with friends, sharing a meal or cooking is one of my favorites. Add in a glass of vino or a handcrafted cocktail, and wait for the magic. Mix in guacamole and I’m happy.
Not long ago, I was fortunate to have dear friends in my kitchen slicing and dicing. While we were at it, I mixed up this salsa. The recipe was a joint effort. Shout out to Alexa https://www.wired.com/2016/06/amazon-echos-head-start-biggest-advantagefor Ricky Martin’s, “Livin’ la Vida Loca”.
