Day 157 – Weekend away

While Dan was busy with my two babes over the weekend, I was basking in the glow of time away with no responsibility, no internet, no clocks and no schedule.  I won’t lie, I missed my family, but it didn’t stop me from enjoying very rare time away with people who have been my best friends for almost a quarter of a century.  The people who’ve known me the longest.  Who remember me when I had braces and teased hair.  The same people who remember tales of my very first date and also of the last person I dated (and everything in between).  They know all my stories and have been there to offer a shoulder whenever I’ve needed it.  We were just kids ourselves when we met so many years ago and now we all watch our kids play together.  I feel so fortunate to still know these gals.  To still see them and to still be part of their lives.

This weekend we laughed, we ate, we drank, we relaxed, we played, we ate, we danced, we napped, we talked, we almost lost Alicia on a runaway dock, we ate some more, but mostly we just enjoyed.  There were rarely moments of silence as we have 23+ years of memories to keep us busy.  We talked lovingly about those we were missing, hoping the next time sees us all together again.

I’ve heard it said that you should surround yourself with people who lift you higher, and this weekend I did just that.  Thanks girls, for another perfect weekend away.

Claudia - Great pics! I feel like such a dud for being the first to crash, does that make me the lightweight of the bunch? Great times were had, thanks for everything girls!
