High School Friends

I met my dear friend Susan when we were about thirteen years old. 

I had just enrolled in a new school and she was one of the first people I met. Her kindness to the new girl was never forgotten. We remained close friends throughout high school but I moved away a few years after we graduated and we lost touch. Thanks to Facebook, we caught up with each other again a few years ago. On Saturday night Mr. Mickey and I joined Susan and her handsome French husband, C.A. for dinner on the patio at Gourmet & Company.

We all chose something healthy and colorful from the menu. Chef Jacob's family was also dining on the patio at the table next to us. Mr. Mickey snapped this precious photo of him as we was holding his daughter. 

I wore white jeans from Dillard's by Kut from the Kloth with a white tank top and duster length sweater from Chico's. The turquoise color necklace is also from Chico's. The shoes are by Jessica Simpson from T.J. Maxx.

Thank you for joining me and Mr. Mickey on this journey through midlife and beyond. 
The second fifty years are the best!

How wonderful you have reconnected with your schoolmate! She is a very pretty lady with a very good-looking husband. I would image the four of you turned heads at the restaurant. Definitely like outfit you chose for the evening out.

So glad you found Kut from the Kloth. They are my favorite brand. I must own 1/2 dozen of them.

How lovely to reconnect with an old friend. You should be on the travel guide for your city. Places to go and places to see with Susan and Mr. Mickey

There must be something in the water you drink. None of you look your age!

Now those shoes look really great because they don't shorten the leg!
