Earlier, I wrote about the awesomeness of girlfriends, and how they are totally a gift from God. Last weekend, before I left for internship, I spent the weekend with my BFF from high school. We don't get to hang out or talk too often, as our lives have gone radically different directions since high school, and particularly since college. However, occasionally we're able to make time for a good phone call or quick visit, and last weekend I got a whole day and a half with my "bestie."
It was fun to see her kids, as they are so flippin' adorable, but her husband was also gracious enough to really keep an eye on them a lot of the time, and to entertain himself when they were asleep. We had lots of time to catch up on the important and not-so-important things that are going on in our lives, to spend more money than we should at an awesome little bookstore, and even to do a little yoga. (It was my first time doing yoga, and I kind of liked it. Man, I worked hard, but it was kind of relaxing, and I didn't finish feeling frustrated at my total inability to "grapevine across the room" or whatever.)
It was a great weekend, and also a very relaxing weekend, and I was reminded again of how wonderful these relationships - and this one in particular - really are. It's also fun to see how no matter how much time or distance separates us, some things never change.
