On Wednesday night I drove to Olympia with Eric to meet up with John Talcott. We went to high school together, and were such great friends! He was the friend who I had the best and deepest conversations with, and we shared birthdays! It was so much fun to introduce my husband to John, as John was most protective of me growing up. He always told me to guard my heart - and that someone who came along would be deserving of it; Eric is certainly that boy.
I've been thinking on this post for some time. It's hard to find the words to encompass what it's like to hang out with an old friend. We sat across the booth from each other sharing our new conquests and old stories. It's been about 7 years since we had a chance to catch up in person, and our lives have taken such radical directions. I live on the west coast, he lives on the East. We're both successful in our own world, but miss home from time to time.
John should be back in my area in the next month or so... I can't wait to see him again!
Thanks for taking the time to visit... Maybe we'll have to trek out to PA to see you too!
