Lunch at Lido Restaurant for a Fond Farewell

Mmmmonday

Today, I am fondly looking back to a sweet luncheon that Sam and I had with Kristi before she left for San Diego.  It was a gorgeous day and the finest food, but a bitter sweet moment as we said goodbye to such a bright light.  After two years of Zesting with her, we were sad that her last day was finally upon us!  In order to keep our smiles, we headed straight for Lido for some crystal blue skies and cocktails.

While we sipped on fresh cocktails, Sam and I presented our sweet missy with a Zest scrap book commemorating the two year journey of living life with us crazy girls.  SO many great moments!  We loved making her laugh!!
