The Ladies Lunch

From Left to Right- Darice,Sharon,Jennifer,Sue,Ruth, and Vivian

I had a lovely time with my first Ladies lunch at the manor. I walked four miles this morning to keep myself calm. (Iget so excited and nervous)I made Tortellini soup, Darice brought a salad, Jennifer brought rolls, Sue brought drinks, Sharon brought a cake for all the Jan/Feb birthdays, Ruth made a yummy bread and cookies and Vivian made a spring roll starter. It was so nice to catch up with everyone. It had been about three months since I'd last seen them. We are planning another lunch in March.
