How much do I love these guys!!
It's amazing how time can fly by but connections continue to get deeper. This is my best friend from high school. She's just as beautiful today as she was way back when (::cough1985cough::). She's the one person I've stayed in contact with and I've always missed since moving to LA in 1992. She knows me better than most. She's the only close friend who was there, physically and emotionally there, during my life's events as a kid. She knows who I was and who I've grown to be. Seeing her was like an exciting blast from the past. Yet we picked right up where we left off ... laughing, crying, reminiscing, ranting.
Having Beth meet Cheryl was a dream come true - especially finding their immediate love for each other. Cheryl keeps asking when Beth is moving out here...talking about all of us getting a big house together. How 'bout it Beth? No pressure. Take your time. At the very least, let's work on getting you here for a nice vacation. No worries either -- we won't make you try avocado or goat yogurt. But you gotta admit, Trader Joe's rocks!
Beth is the first person Cheryl and I saw in my hometown. It was one o'clock in the morning, Saturday Oct 10th. We had been traveling since 6pm Thursday night. We couldn't wait to fall into a bed. But when we saw Beth, I got my second (third, fourth?) wind and we gabbed and gabbed for over an hour.
The following couple of days we spent lots of time rolling on the floor with her children. Ohhh the stories. Brilliant, beautiful kids. Spitting images of their parents.
This trip was a reminder of the important things in life. Friends, family, love, connections, truth and laughter. [Beth is one of the funniest people I know.]
