Turned out to be a beautiful day for a drive through the countryside.
The reason for our trip was to visit an old friend of mine. Other than family, Rose is the person who has been in my life the longest, as we have been friends for about 25 or 30 years. So long ago I can’t even remember when exactly we became friends! haha
Many times, the fulltime lifestyle allows people who don’t see each other very often to catch up a little bit more. But in our case, our lifestyle had the opposite effect, since we used to see Rose more frequently when Harry and I were living in NY year round. But over the past five years since we hit the road, we’ve only been able to meet up with Rose for a lunch or dinner a couple times. This year I was determined to plan a longer get together, and Rose and I compared calendars a couple months ago to find a couple free days in common.
Coincidentally, our visit fell on Harry and my 8th wedding anniversary. But there wasn’t anything lacking in our celebration, as Rose is Italian through and through, and prepared a veritable Italian feast for dinner! Yum!
We had a wonderful time, just chatting and catching up. The great thing about old friends is that the connection doesn’t change with distance. We enjoyed spending a couple days reconnecting and promised ourselves that we will make time to connect again next year!
