Friends for a very, very long time

I am in the enviable position of having a group of girlfriends who I have now known for most of my life. Melinda–third grade, Sally–fifth, Amy–seventh and Kate–tenth. After high school we all went our separate ways but would still hang out over break. Once we all grew up and started careers and families, it took a little bit more coordination to keep those ties going.

For the past decade and a half, we have made a concerted effort to get together at least once a year. Of course, COVID has now thrown our little group for a loop, but we have gotten in the habit of twice monthly zoom calls.

Yesterday, in honor of my birthday as well as the fact that I would be alone for Thanksgiving, my pals ordered a repast from a local restaurant. Looking out for their Linnea friend, they were.

And Kate sent me a wonderful package of books, chocolate, salted caramel licorice (OMG–so good) and some fabulous coasters with a montage of photos. I won’t share the chocolate, but I can show you some pictures 🙂

  3. Happy Belated Birthday! I have no excuse. It’s marked on my calendar. I meant to send you a wish on the big day, but got distracted by the holiday.
    Thank you for sharing the photos. That’s what it’s; “LIFE”, is all about!
