Belated Birthday Gelata

 A week ago today, I had a birthday. My friends and family did a great job of helping me celebrate, but one of them was away and decided that she need to celebrate me. I didn't turn her down. :)  So this evening, we headed out for gelata and drinks.

 I haven't been to the gelata place in a very long time.  My gelata was fantastic even though Keisha said the nutty gelata tasted like playdough.  The chai was the best chai I've ever had. It had a very strong cardamom flavour and may have even been dusted with cardamom. It was sooo good! I am still very happy. ;)

 In addition to yummy food and drink, we also enjoyed quality child-free conversation.  Our conversations were actually rather deep as we discussed creation and evolution, racism, segregation, multiculturalism and talking to children about race/ethnicity. I am so thankful for a group of friends that I can enjoy food, conversation and silliness with. I am blessed.


  1. Happy belated Birthday! Kid free conversations always do a mom good.

  2. holy gelata Batman! Those ARE deep topics – and I agree with Jody – kid free conversations always do a mom good – especially when they're among loving friends. And what's a cardamom? Nevermind I'll Google it -------------- oh, it's a spice – I almost had that figured on my own :-) anyway, I hearted this – and I smiled lots – and I'm glad I get to read you – God bless and keep you and each and every one of yours.
