My daughter's dad was not always an active part in our lives...and I'm truly not complaining because he left me alone to raise the girls the way I felt was best. Of course the door was always open for him to be a part of their lives but he had his own issues to work out. In fact, this would be the first party he has ever thrown his daughter in 18 years. So yes all of the girls' school events etc were always attended by me solo or with the company of Marianne, my great friend. She's not only an important part of my life but also the girls.
Soooo after my daughter's party, I drove across the Bay Bridge to the city (San Francisco) where all of the guest wore white and bday girl wore red. It was a dinner party of at least ten women, and we all ate catered Asian food and drank lots of Prosecco. We talked for hours and it was so nice towards the end of dinner because we all shared a moment we had with Marianne. After dinner, the girls decided to go to the club. I'm not much of a clubber so after about fifteen minutes of being inside the club I ubered my way back to my car and left.
However, my night was not over. I had already planned to meet a friend of mine after the party, and he was kind enough to wait up for me. He lives closer to the city than I do, just 15 minutes away verses my 45-60 minutes trek back home. When I got to his house, I was so tired, he politely turned a movie on for me so I could fall asleep. The next morning we took a walk to the grocery store around the corner bought some corn and meat and had a nice little barbecue outside. The weather was perfect and it was so nice and relaxing. I left home shortly after. I am just so thankful for all of the wonderful people in my life both old and new.
Sunday evening I shut off from the rest of the world and put away my phone. My kids asked me about my night and while I was talking to them, I prepared my meals for the next day. I have been on this kick on trying to eat healthier...more specifically a more plant-based diet. Wish me luck! And please feel free to share what you did over the weekend.
A little about me...
I'm learning how to look at everything with love, even if it seems impossible, like rush hour traffic. I want to share my journey of self-love so that others may want to emulate and pass it on into the universe. Ohh...and sometimes people call me Suzie.
