friyay happy hour: spicy citrus slinger

these days, time for my good friends who don't live down the street is pretty much limited to occasional facetimes and phone calls. and while those important times connecting verbally are great, there is no substitute for girl time. i love my husband, but he is just no substitute for my besties. 

but, i'm about to fill up girl time tank. i'm headed out of town this weekend to ojai with some of my best gals for some much needed recharging. so i'm going to keep this friyay happy hour short and sweet. and spicy.
