Galentine’s Brunch at Joji’s

It’s Valentine’s week and its been a fun week of flowers, food, family and friends. I’ve been celebrating Valentine’s Day in many ways by planning a special dinner with the twins for V-Day with the family; I’ve also been meeting with friends over tea and brunch, while delivering flowers to others.

Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the unique love and bond that exists not only with family but with friends as well 💕.  It’s with this sentiment that my friends Joji and Rose hosted a Galentine’s brunch for their girlfriends. Think Valentine’s Day celebration with good friends.

There is a special bond that close friends have, maybe its because we’ve known them for a long time – like decades! When you have a friend for that many years they become like family, they’re easy to talk to and easy to be with.  With others the special bond maybe because of similar interests, and though we may not see each other often, the conversations are animated and exciting over common themes.  It’s this pleasant escape from our daily routine that friends give us that we celebrated this week.  Here is a look at a few pics from our Galentine’s Brunch at our friend Joji’s home.

Each of us brought an item to share making it a festive, eclectic and delicious meal. The saying “Many hands make light work.” holds true here and I should add, “Many cooks make delicious food.”  Every dish was scrumptious!
