Christmas in July!

July 21, 2018

I just had the best weekend ever! When I was growing up in Ohio, I had four great friends I hung around with in school, girl scouts, church and everything else important in our 8-14 year old lives:

I am on the left if you could not guess. What do you think of my orange plaid pants? LOL I moved away from my group of friends when I was only 14 years old. Went clear across the country to MA with my family where I am still around. It was a very hard time.

But can you believe that this past weekend, after 45 years! we got together here at my home in NH! We clicked right away again and brought up old memories and laughed and laughed and laughed all weekend!
