Spending time with a friend from your childhood reaffirms your history. You reminisce, laugh, talk and realize that although you may not have seen each other in over a year...the rhythm continues as if you have seen each other every day. I had such a weekend and it is a gift! I read a quote this last week that said, contact a friend you haven't seen in a while...reconnect, it's good for your health!!
And so my bestie from high school and I played the entire weekend in Portland. I shared some of my favorite haunts, happy hours, shopping and we stayed up past midnight every night just hanging together. I brought 3 hand stitching projects to work on...and she brought a rug hooking project...BUT, neither of us touched our stitching, lol. I think taking a break once in a while is a good thing!
Breakfast at Cheryl's on 12th
Happy Hour at Jake's Fish House...and their famous Banana Cream Pie!
Just a small portion of the activities so as to not bore you, lol...then it was back over the mountain where the snow was spitting with a chill in the air. Yet...it is supposed to reach 80 by mid week. Gotta love Spring!
I have decided to start each week with a "funny" of some kind. I think we need more laughter in the world! I am off to Material Girls today which means we will be back to the "quilt talk" tomorrow! Enjoy the video!
