Lunch in Laguna Beach overlooking the ocean.
90 degree off shore Santa Ana winds.
A chilled Chardonnay.
A friendship of 34 years.
Losing 5 pounds.
Playing hooky.
Toasting the future and a new chapter in familiar surroundings.

I hope you find something extraordinary to celebrate today too, friends!
