On The Town

To celebrate a one-of-a-kind gal who is gracious and sweet, hardworking, brilliant, gorgeous and undeniably a remarkable friend, we got the crew together and started with happy hour at Webster House:

Next we found our way to the new Aixois downtown, which has quickly become a place I desire to be every.single.weekend. If not just for the buttery goodness of their fresh, rich menu (hello the bread sat and dipped in that soup concoction), but for the urban feel of the atmosphere, the never ending rounds of wine and the friendly banter with the wait staff. In my previous life (BC=before children), I picture myself here catching a scone on Sunday morning and gasp - reading a newspaper. Or loosely holding hands with my husband while we say nothing at all. Tucked away in a gorgeous city building we take for granted, it filled that little hole that starts to grow from living in suburbia too long.

Relaxed, easy, reminiscent and filled with those I adore the most, it was an evening to cherish and celebrate, just like we do the birthday girl each and everyday.

 Cheers to a night on the town downtown! And to a birthday girl who certainly deserves it...
