last wednesday, my friend melinda hosted a pasta-making girls night, and it was so totally delightful. i made my very own from-scratch spaghetti and ravioli and it was super delicious! we had eleven lovely ladies (and one adorable baby boy!) kneading and rolling and stuffing and stamping and cooking and enjoying pasta in the kitchen, and i felt quite the happiest i have in a while. i love these beautiful, strong women and feel so lucky to call them my friends.
