I picked her up from the airport late Saturday night, had a wonderful Easter dinner on Sunday with family and friends. My friend and I spent the next couple of days just going places and doing things! It was great that I was able to take off a couple of days from work just to have fun!
We drove down to Port Aransas, had a great lunch, flew a kite, ate fudge pops on the beach and just enjoyed each others company. We also went to a Pilates class, ate a gooey french sandwich afterwards and went to the movies to watch Home.
Between flying a kite, (which she hadn't done since she was 7), and going to the movies to watch the animated film Home, I felt like a little girl playing with my best friend! I enjoyed her company immensely and wished that she did't live so far away, but no matter, I felt special that she thought of visiting me, instead of going home.
It's amazing that when you meet a person, there can be a connection right away. We met five years ago in a glass workshop on beautiful Whidbey Island, WA. We became fast friends and have spent the last five years talking on the phone on Sunday mornings..
I hope I get to see her again soon, if not, I at least look forward to having Sunday morning coffee with her.
