I met my Girl's Night Out friends for our monthly get together at a restaurant. We laugh a lot, catch up on family events, kid happenings—the usual girly things. We swap gifts in December, a ritual I look forward to every year. My lady friends are pretty creative. A couple years back one friend had these wonderful earrings made for me. This time she presented the matching necklace. I'm still amazed at the artististic talent and patience required to intricately wrap all that wire to form spokes.
