Old Friends, New Friends

Miles and I went to visit one of my best friends, Joy, and her family last week. We met Joy's husband Charlie and their adorable little Macy for the first time. Macy just turned one year old a few weeks ago.

Our visit was much too short, with Joy and I staying up late both nights talking and laughing -- at one point I was laughing so hard I had to run to the sink to spit out my Coke. We've laughed that hard every time we've been together, whether it was at summer camp or just hanging out in one of our rooms as kids.

But this visit was so special, because it's been more than five years since we've seen one another in person. We had only seen pictures of each others' kids, but we felt like we'd known them already, having seen pictures and heard stories. And yes...Macy is just as cute in person as she is in the picture below -- actually, even cuter. If she hadn't been so wiggly I would have held her and squeezed her and kissed her little cheeks a lot more!

Miles and Macy became fast friends in that short time we were there, with her usually following him around, and both of them giggling at each other at whatever it is little ones find funny. After that visit, all I wanted was to know that Joy and I would get to see one another much sooner than five years from now, and I think she feels the same.

You KNOW I feel the same! I'm sure I will see you within months, not years! It was such an awesome visit. It felt just like it always has...3rd grade, or age 33 (yes, I can say that for one more day)!

And now 4th grade, or age 34. : )
