Last night, I had a virtual happy hour with my two best friends. These virtual meet ups, with people near and far, have been happening a lot in our house due to the current corona situation.
It got me thinking… why haven’t we been doing this more with people who we don’t live near? Why did it take an international pandemic for us to start this? It has definitely shifted my thinking moving forward, and I imagine a lot of people will be doing more virtual hangouts with people they love when this all blows over.
The hour that I spent with these two was the highlight of my day. We toasted, laughed, caught up, and shared. We commiserated in our current state, and we talked about other life happenings. It was everything I needed and more. Most importantly, I got to see their faces. I got to feel like we were in the same room, just being.
