Dinner & Reconnections

Tonight, Geof and I met up with someone who used to be one of my best friends. Somewhere along the way we lost touch and thanks to the power of technology (Facebook, texts), we got connected again. We hadn’t spoken since about a year before my wedding and both missed each other a ton. When we saw each other tonight, we hugged for the longest time and I even got a little emotional. Isn’t it amazing how when you haven’t seen someone in a long time that you have history with, you can just pick up right where you left off? I felt bad for Geof, because we could have chatted for hours! It was wonderful. We made a promise never to let anything separate us again because life is just too short.

Iron Hill Brewery

Okay, enough of the sappy stuff. For dinner, we went to Iron Hill Brewery, which I love. They have a wonderful menu and delicious brew. I was bummed because their pumpkin beer isn’t in season yet (which makes no sense), but ended up with the good old Light Lager. The three of us split some cheesesteak eggrolls and nachos. For dinner I had Belgian Meatballs with Yukon gold potatoes and beer braised red cabbage. As if that wasn’t already enough, we split crème brulee and old fashioned oatmeal cake. We hardly touched the desserts. It was pure gluttony.

Barb and I. We both came right from work!

It was a fantastic night and I left feeling so happy. Because I don’t have any siblings, my friends are my family. I feel like I just got back a sister and it feels so good.

I just reconnected with an old friend from high school this weekend when I was in NH this weekend. We were literally inseparable my senior year in high school...then college happened. Turns out she is one of the friends that you can just easily go back too! Isn't it so fun...

what a great night! so wonderful to get reconnected and i LOVE those great friends where you can see them after too long and it's as if no time has passed! I've been talking all week about maybe joining FB for this reason and you're making me think about it even more girl, I know I'm so behind=)!

Danielle said...

I do have my sisters, but have some great friends that are also like family. That's so important!

Your comment on my blog was so sweet. Do you have any flying tips?

Those uggs are AMAZING. Look for sales. I got them $40 off at Nordstrom but have since seen them 20% off.

And of course I'd love to meet you someday, too :)

My parents love Iron Hill Brewery! It's a wonder I've never seen you in person because we live around each other/go to the same places.

Isn't it cool how many people you can reach now through Facebook & Myspace! I've gotten in touch with people I haven't talked to in 15+ years!

Tasha said...

Glad you reconnected with your friend! I totally agree that true friends can pick up where they left off and never have a moment of weirdness. Girlfriends are just the best! Facebook is such a great way to keep in touch and reconnect. Love it! That brewery looks like such a fun place to hang out!

I'm so happy for you and your friend. I lost touch with the friend that introduced me to Brian. Due to a bad marriage and a controlling husband she had no contact with her previous life. A few months after her divorce we were back together again!!! XOXO
