Dining, Friends

Lunch at Gloria’s

Our lunches and dinners with friends here are such special times. We love the pace of these gatherings. No rushing. No hey, this is lunch and I have lots of things to do at home let’s hurry up. Just a wonderfully relaxed time with friends. Yesterday’s lunch at Gloria’s was six hours. ♥

Gloria has recently moved out of the village which makes us all sad. However, she is only 5 minutes away and her new place is so amazing! Her outside kitchen and pool will make a great gathering place for our Summer evening dinners and open-air movies.

Gloria showed us around and then we settled in the sun in the front garden for beer, cava, wine and some nibbles. Nice to be able to do that in February.

This wine was wonderful. It reminded Bob and me of Toasted Head Chardonnay from California.

I’ve said it before and I will say it again. We are so lucky to have these incredible neighbors who have become such dear friends. ♥

I think it is safe to say that Omm and Lucky like their new home.

Thank you so much, Gloria, for hosting lunch! Look forward to the next one.
