Best Friend

As a child, I had a best friend. The same best friend for my whole childhood. I still consider her a friend, but we live very far away from each other. Honestly, she knows very little about my day to day current life. I struggle when people mention their best friend--I don't think I have one.

I have had close friends in adulthood that the friendships have drifted away. This is a new thing for me. I had the same friends growing up with out the coming in and out of your life. Sometimes I am sad that the old group of friends dissolved--although it did so without drama or hard feelings. It seemed as if we all were going in different directions onto new things.

I had close friends move away. It was hard being the ones that are left behind. Although these friends we see regularly, we don't have the day to day interaction anymore.

I several friends who I love--I just can't narrow it down to one best friend. I love the idea of one with that special bond. I just don't know if I have that at this point in my life.

Disney World


Yesterday we made it home after eight days at Disney World. We all had an amazing time. We met Josh's sister and her husband there. It was fun to be with them too. I kept up my Lenten goal of no meat. Surprisingly, every restaurant had at least one vegetarian choice. We had long, fun filled days. Often we would be out from 9 am until 11 pm. The girls kept up well and there was very little grumpiness from anyone.

Highlights:

Toy Story Mania

Soaring

Lunch at Norway in Epcot

It's a Small World

Bakery in France in Epcot

Pin Trading

Light Show/Fireworks at Hollywood Studios


So many fun shows, parades, fireworks, it's had to imagine we did so much in one week.

This Book is Amazing



I was given this book for Christmas from Josh. Each time I bake from it I am surprised by the crust texture--delicious. I think it is because of the technique used. You place a pan with water in the oven as the bread bakes. It is so good I may have to sneak in the kitchen for a late night slice of bread.

Alexander Days

I am having one of those Alexander Days.

Ice cream---eventually

I have a friend I haven't been able to get together with since November. We even live in the same town. Life has kept us both busy and we finally were able to meet for ice cream. Well that was the plan.

We arrive. Ah, winter hours--they don't open for another hour. To the book store--with her little one in the stroller. We go back at opening time. We wait...the employee was not very motivated in opening the store. She unlocks the door, we get our ice cream (YUMMY).

Weakness

We are all multifaceted and different parts of our personality shows at different times. I am an odd mixture of open and closed with my feelings. I keep some things quite guarded. I don't like to show weakness, which is terrible. I don't like this about myself.

The Secret to my Natural Beauty :)

I just got home from getting my highlights, hair cut, and eye brows done. It seems superficial, but sometimes it is the little things that make you smile.
