Good girlfriends are the heart of true happiness. I'm talking girlfriends that you can love and laugh with and share your most inner feelings. Girlfriends that you can express your true self, share information, listen, help each other and celebrate life's joys with. That is what I love so much about the friends in my life. The weeks get stressful with a baby and preschooler and I find myself still in yoga pants and spit up at 8:00 at night. Mommy-hood is selfless and loving and the best way to rejuvenate those feelings is to take care of yourself. For me it is fitness and friendships. So I look forward to any chance for a mommy date!
We just had a couple of friends over for a low key happy hour play date on Friday. A favorite light and healthy appetizer I made was these cucumber feta mint bites delicately displayed on mini skewers & toothpicks. One of my girlfriends kept saying “It feels like I am at the spa eating this!”
Cucumber, mint and feta cheese combined is a refreshing and tasty appetizer and any leftovers can be used by tossing the ingredients into a large bowl and adding cherry tomatoes, olive oil & lemon for a quick salad.
