This weekend I was able to travel back to Minnesota where I spent a few years growing up to attend Michele (and Chris’) wedding, a friend I’ve known for over 10 years! She is one of the kindest, full-of-life people you will ever meet. Its so great to go back and as soon as I’m in the room with the old crew it feels like not too much has changed (yet last time we were hanging out on a daily basis we couldn’t even drive… didn’t have a single diploma… and NSync was still topping the charts with hits) and I consider myself lucky to have friendships like that. I think Amanda said it best this weekend when she said “I love seeing you, but its sad because it makes me realize how much I miss not being close”. While that is true, I love these girls to death! They’re the best kind of friends one could ask for. And I hope as life continues and we experience joys (and sorrows) that we would continue to be there for each other – encouraging one another. Amanda has a wedding coming up in a year (CONGRATS!) and I hope that J will be able to finally come up and meet ‘this’ part of my life!
Here are a few fun shots from the weekend:
And Sunday Amanda took me to Canterberry to the horse races. We had SO much fun – I’d never been before, and it was great! I didn’t bet, but I would have lost anyway b/c I kept track of the horses I would have picked… oh well. It was tons of fun.
All in all – a great weekend. I’m missing a few things this weekend though – Jeff, my puppy, & my house! And I’m excited to see my brother (who has been gone for a few weeks) and hug my Dad (who just lost a dear friend of his).
