Dinner at Ashlyn's

What a wonderful evening filled with really good Indian food. The only request we had was that next time you cook, make sure the meal is being prepared while we are arriving so we can smell the spices wafting from your home as we enter, making our taste-buds anticipate what is to come. 

Another fantastic Sunday dinner with good food and great friends. Being the over-thinker that I am I tend to reflect back on things, more than I should, and try to make sense or connections to whatever it is that I am thinking about. 

As I Reflect back on the evenings we have spent together enjoying yummy food, I wonder how often you can mesh a group of individuals together from such different backgrounds and upbringings that all get along and truly enjoy each others company. I feel that this is a rarity, isn't there always someone who tolerates someone else or just flat out does not get along with the group? Not in our case! Our group has a connectedness, the right mixture of personalities and differences that makes it unique and interesting.

Thank you Ashlyn for hosting last nights Sunday Dinner! I know that everyone is looking forward to dinner at Jennifer's in August followed by Melissa and Josh's in September.
