    Three on Thursday | Three of Us Throwbacks.

    In the end, I wasn’t able to join the girls for dinner last night … so I don’t have the recap post I’d planned (things we talked about/things I learned, creative cocktails, food p*rn) or the requisite three of us photo. Instead, how about revisiting three of my favorite meals with my two favorite girls. 1. Lunch at Gallo Nero in NYC. December 19, 2009.

I’m thinking I’ll likely be sitting here…but Sara will be at work. in Wisconsin. (yikes!) We started Friday afternoon with a three-of-us lunch at our favorite Bistro VG. We’ve enjoyed so many three-of-us lunches here, going back to when Sara was in middle school and Katie was in her first year of college. Our conversations have covered so much – high school, prom, jobs, boyfriends, girlfriends, sororities, spring breaks, college, study…

    december | eight.

    photo (edited in camera+)  of the journaling card that accompanied the tickets…all ready for my project life album! …my birthday gift from katie & sara included tickets to the atlanta symphony’s christmas concert and dinner after at our favorite bistro vg.  needless to say, we had a ball. of course cameras are prohibited during the concert; this is the pre-concert warm-up the concert was amazing. 150+ voices (plus another hundred or so with the combined choruses) accompanied by a full orchestra. they opened with o come emmanuel and it brought tears to my eyes. the hallelujah chorus was just as beautiful. we also loved the vivaldi piece with the violin…
