(subtract the "guilt" part)You might remember my excitement, a couple months ago, when I found out that two of my oldest BFFs were moving within road trip distance from me: Michelle now lives 3.5 hours away in Maryland and Andy lives 1.5 hours away in a quiet New York town.
Michelle and I used to spend many a nights curled up on the couch together watching rom-coms (even though I don't care for them too much) and consuming about a billion calories till all hours of the night. You know, best friend stuff. I've missed living close to her for the last six years and it had been three years since I last hung out with her...until I drove the short distance to see her (and my goddaughter, Jordyn!) last week.
We spent the day having lunch at a cute restaurant, grabbing homemade cookies, and walking around Annapolis.
|She loves me, I swear. She's just more interested in that choco-chip cookie.|
I hadn't seen my goddaughter since she was 2 months old. Luckily she took an immediate liking to me, but kids always do :) She even commented on how she loved my tattoos, LOL!
She may not be five-minutes-away-kinda-close anymore but it feels so good to be a drive away.
The end :)
When we got home she wanted to put on a dress like her "auntie Roni." Also, at one point Jordyn was in her carseat rambling on to me about my husband and her husband. I didn't understand, so Michelle laughed and interjected, "she calls headbands husbands". I guess somewhere along the way Jordyn thought the two words sounded alike, even once innocently telling her grandmother, "you need a husband." Naturally, the coincidentally single grandmother didn't realize Jordyn meant a hair accessory, but the guileless comment got a good laugh from Michelle and her hubby. So cute!As for the evening, we did what we do best: watching movie after movie and stuffing our faces with grape twizzlers, M&Ms, sour belts, etc. I'd missed nights like these with my bestie.

The end :)
