Escaping the Ordinary

I've had a very busy week, as most weeks tend to go during this advent season. But last night I was treated with a night out with my girlfriends. We typically try to get together one Saturday evening every 2 to 3 months. The last time we were together was in the middle of October. As we were trying to plan a night out before the end of the year, we quickly realized it was going to be impossible to try to align every one's schedules in December to make a Saturday work. And that's one rule we have about girls' night. Every one has to be able to make it otherwise we cancel and reschedule.

So being the determined girls we are, we decided to pick a weeknight this time. Last night, after the meal was finished, we all agreed that going out on a weeknight was a lot of fun. Instead of eating a few appetizers and then spending the majority of our time on the bar scene, we indulged in a big, long dinner with great conversation and lots and lots of laughs.

Both types of nights are wonderful and it's nice to have a little bit of each every once in a while. But the part I love most about girls' night is how it is a big priority in each of our lives. The date we pick is sacred and it usually will take something pretty big for us to cancel. Each of us is at a different point in our lives. Some are married, some are dating and some are looking. Currently I am the only one with a baby. No matter where we are in our lives, though, we each are taking a little time to escape the ordinary and every one needs a little of that.
