Dinner out in Stockholm

On Friday evening, I gathered a bunch of lovely women at Story Hotel; some very old friends and others that I have known for some years now.
The dark pretty and lovely woman is Cissi and I've known her since I was 19 years old and we've shared  all kinds of roller-costers life has to offer between the age of 20-30 (she is five years older than me). Same with Caroline, the sensual woman with the white tank top. I knew her since the same age more or less and we've had periods where we hardly spoke to each other, but yet it feels like time stood still when we meet again.
I've already introduced Linnea , but Corinne is one of those who I came to love later in life and iIthink it's so wonderful how life just keeps bringing new friendships if we want and are open to it.

I did miss the two Johannas, Minna, Rebecca, Lissie and Annika though who all couldn't come due to different reasons. Let's see each other in December!

    1. Sometimes I can't enjoy the red wine becasue it gives me such a migraine, but I had cocktails and drinks. Weirdly as it may seem, Vodka is better than wine for me.

      no, no, no Uta, nothing like that! Blink

  4. I think it's really sad that 4 out of seven ( I suppose since there's two more glasses on the table) have their cell phones lying on the table while being out with friends.This has become such an annoying habit and once in a while they will tip on this little round button to see if they might have missed on VERY IMPORTANT call/message during the last 25 minutes on a Friday evening! It's so really sad that the company of one's own friends is obviously not enough for 2-3 hours, that the phone could stay in the handbag during this time without being checked. Because what happens is that people are not fully concentrated on one another (don't someone come up with the story of women and multi-tasking......shhhh!) and don't really neither live nor appreciate that very percious moment to the fullest. There might always be a chance that one or two of them have a toddler at home that's not too well and that they have to be alearted......but min. 4 out of seven? No way!
    But who am I to judge? All I'm describing is my own observation and what I have learned and realized during the past coulpe of months. Nowadays I really ask my friends that show this behaviour to put the cell away unless there's some exceptional situation and instead to enjoy the time being together. Because as my grandpa always said: Look at the cemetary, there's only people lying that were indipensable throughout their entire lives ;-)

    1. Everyone except Corinne have children (two of them have two small ones) had a babysitter, nanny or some other watching their kids so we all need to have our cells on the table "in case of". I totally agree that this is a bad habit, but often a necessary one when having small children.

  5. Off topic: Stina, it feels a little unpolite to ask, however, what happened to the Mayla contest? I really loved that skirt you were wearing. And well frankly, i'm always excited when there,s a possibility to win gorgeous dresses!
