I mentioned in passing our weekend away, and now I got to share some photos (though admittedly few) about our stay.
We returned "HOME" last weekend. In truth, it was our LAST home, but even as we drove past the familiar fences and trees, in my mind it was as if these last few months had only been a short visit and we were just returning from a time away.
It has been since June that we packed up and hauled off, leaving our dear friends with sorrowful (and wet) adieu's. Frankly, it was high time we returned to get a "refill" of them.
I have missed them all SO much, and realized even MORE than I thought, as we caught up and basked in each others' company.
Someday perhaps our lives will include cherished memories of particular fences, trees, and country lanes in this neck of the woods, but even if that is true, a piece of us will always belong out there- for as long as our friends are present there, we shall be, because our friends hold pieces of our hearts with them.
I had such a grand time.
This was the hostess with the most-ess, who opened up her home and made me lose my much-prided "not much weight gain status". I am sure I gained more in one weekend than I have this whole pregnancy thanks to her diligence and delectable cooking.
Proof of the wonderful visit is made evident by my lack of photos. I hardly THOUGHT about my camera, the enjoyment of company was too all-encompassing. But at one point, I did hijack my Nanci so that I could get a photo of us both, with credit and thanks to her daughter Megan for the taking of it.
