She's in town visiting from San Francisco and we both immediately revert back to our usual selves around each other as if no time had passed whatsoever. Her older brother Jeremy even stopped in for some chatter and catching up... it's a unique life experience to know people so long and understand they love you for the very best and the very worst of who you are. This morning DK left for Pittsburgh and tomorrow I fly out to meet his entire family. This is a huge deal and more and more I'm realizing how grown up I am. I guess spending time with childhood friends will help cement that comprehension process? I'm leaving my world here in Houston to venture into creating memories with this man I love and his family. Then I read Dave and Kim's blog - they are headed out to Borneo Island for Christmas and the simplicity in their message of loving and missing loved ones makes me cry. Andrew is in St. Croix living it up, working hard on his boat in the Virgin Islands.
We're like grown-ups, man.
