Has anyone else taken advantage of a Groupon deal to experience a new restaurant?
Well, me and my roomate did, and the results were wonderful! We got two full breakfasts and 2 mimosas for $12, and spent time in a quaint little restaurant in Huntington Beach. Our Hawaiian inspired french toast and slightly spicy eggs benedcit were good. We enjoyed picking a few things off the menu to share and relished our mimosas. It was a decent meal in a freezing cold restaurant with wonderful service.
However, all that was put aside because the real highlight of this brisk morning was the company. This girl has so much going on in her brain and her heart and it always inspires me to spend time with her and hear about her perspectives. We are so different, and come from such different places; but our experiences can teach each other things, and I learn so much from her. This morning spent together was so wonderful because we just fell into excellent conversation and laughed and talked and worked on our friendship in a tangible way.
I believe that just like any romantic relationship, friendship requires work. You need to make time for each other and make each other feel loved. Mikaela and I try to do that as best we can. Being roommates does not mean you will be close, but if you want to make an effort at it, your chances are so much better. We are now to a complete honesty point, and I could not be more grateful for her! This morning we dug a little deeper and continued to get to know each other on a spiritual level, which is important in any friendship.
What a lovely morning spent with a lovely girl!
Company always improves a great meal.
