Posts Tagged ‘Rebecca’

This past weekend was my last before starting the fall semester. I decided, just a tad spontaneously (which for me means about a week of planning), that I would head to Louisville for part of the weekend to visit my best friend Rebecca.

I’ve known Rebecca for 12 years now. Even though our adult lives have developed quite independently from each other (there were times when I hadn’t even contacted her through email in several months), we have somehow managed to end up with similar beliefs and similar taste in just about everything.

So it was a real treat to get to spend the weekend at her house, simply blending in a bit with the daily life of her little family. It’s not often that you can make a special trip to visit somebody and not feel rude for curling up in an armchair with a good book. At any rate, not only did I get to see my best friend, but I got to see my other wonderful friend Catherine, who happens to be Rebecca’s sister, and to spend some time with Catherine’s small but growing family. And to add to that, on Sunday I got to go to MY sister’s marching band performance, and spend some time with her as well.

Coming home Sunday I was toting not only the memories of the past 48 hours, but also some borrowed movies, new music, a great book I picked up at her house, and even a few adorable items of clothing that probably won’t end up fitting me, but that’s beside the point.

Merry Christmas to me!
