Cool day yesterday

I had such a cool day yesterday. I had three friends, that I haven't seen in 10-15 years, in town from various corners of the world. We got to hang out for the afternoon while our kids played and then go out to dinner at one of Chowder and my favorite pubs (Even if it is Welsh). I can't tell you how much seeing them and being called by my childhood nickname and maiden name sparked something deep inside that somehow has gotten lost over the years. It was something I didn't even know I was missing. Something that I can't begin to describe or put my finger on. But it was something that is so integral to what makes me, "ME."


And I love how I look tall in this picture! (top right)

I totally get that. There is something so comforting about people you knew you way back....often before kids, marriage and everyday life. Often the 'truest'you.

sounds like a great day. I have very good friends from when I lived abroad that we try to catch up with every few years and it is really good too. We have so much to say, between catching up and reminiscing. I'm jealous!

I can dig that, too. Something about me that will always be Bridgett Blake...

And now I will quit stalking you and read you at a more leisurely pace.

I totally get it. Connecting with people who knew you when is such a comfort. It's like going home, isn't it? Before you were Mrs. Chowder and Mrs. Mom. And, BTW, one of your kids has dyed his hair brown :)
