We are spending the weekend in Northern CA to celebrate my fiances’ Grandmothers 80th birthday. Her friends & family came together to surprise her at the restaurant she meets her girlfriends at for their monthly “girls night”. Seeing this tiny 80 woman surrounded by her best girlfriends brings a feeling of familiarity & even though they spoke in Japanese I understand what the giggles and knowing looks between these women mean. It warms my soul and makes cherish the women in my life even more than I do now.
