Over the weekend my friend Katy celebrated her 36th birthday. I remember being at her 6th birthday party. 30 years of awesome memories with one friend. That’s something to really celebrate.
My friend Val and I have been practically living together since 1998. To have made it that long with barely a disagreement is a pretty monumental task.
Although my friend Jenny and I have been friends since the first day of high school, geography has kept us apart for much of our adult lives. Despite the distance, we have remained committed to seeing each other twice a year, no matter what city we’re in. True friendship knows no boundaries.
Although my friends are the same, time continues to move on, and we somehow manage to navigate each phase of our lives while continuing to stick together.
First there was the grade school playground phase where we learned to deal with bullies and cliques, and find other friends who shared our interests. Next came the high school party phase, the kissing boys for the first time phase, the homecoming dance phase. We moved on to college and learned the fake I.D phase, making it to class hungover phase, and eventually graduating to face the real world phase. We maintained our friendships through a cross country move, our raging 20’s, and several years of non-stop weddings.
These days, as our mid-30’s are upon us, we are smack dab in the middle of small children phase. Our time together is relegated to the hours between naps, and our stories are distracted and spoken in cut-off sentences, as objects are removed from small hands and mouths as we watch these tiny people like hawks. Girl’s night out doesn’t exist at this moment in time. It’s more like Girl’s midday snack hour.
At least there’s always wine.
Recently Val and I got together with her mini’s in tow, and enjoyed a quick afternoon wine snack. I made some peach preserves with Caposaldo Prosecco, a bright, bubbly wine with a fruity, citrus aroma. It’s a great, fresh drinking wine, but also makes for killer preserves.
We enjoyed this boozy jam, spread on some locally made bread, and washed it down with Caposaldo Pinot Grigio, a super fresh, crisp wine that is awesome to drink on a hot, summer day.
Fiona had string cheese and water.
Sydney had breast milk.
Clearly this is not the “girl’s night out” of yesteryear.
No matter what shape your “Girl’s Night Out” takes on, Caposaldo wines are a great addition to any occasion, such as a night in, before a night out or even on a laid back weekend.
Time will continue to roll on. Our get togethers will continue to morph into new experiences throughout the years, and there is no doubt we’ll continue to make it work on this road together. All we need is great wine, laughter and good conversation.
