We should all be so lucky…

Our little family of four just returned from 2 wonderful days in Bartlett, NH, visiting with my dear friend Melissa, her parents, and her family.  Melissa and I have been friends, soulmates even, since I can remember. To say we grew up together doesn’t seem to fully encompass our friendship. We’ve been a part of each other’s lives in every way possible, we’ve laughed, played, explored, shared, fought, made up, cried, competed, and loved our way through life.  She is the person I can call who will understand and validate my feelings like few others. As kids, I spent so much time at her house that I actually had my own room!  Her mom and dad treated me like their 4th child-and still do.  We should all be so lucky to have a friend like this.  It was like going home this weekend. We caught up, watched our children play, and binge-played cribbage.  It was perfect and I miss them all already.  Here are some pictures from the weekend.  I really hope we all get together again soon!

Salads taste so much better when someone else makes them!  Thanks, Melis!
