Friday night we got to see out-of-town friends. Jeff & Mandy were down here from Pennsylvania because Jeff spoke at a conference in our area.
We met Jeff & Mandy when we lived in Vermont. They moved up there as newlyweds. We met when I was pregnant with Baby Girl. And we hit it off. Our husbands are nerds…seriously. They talk computers, web sites, design, and who knows what else. Usually we tune them out and discuss shopping, kids, restaurants, houses, tv.
We haven’t seen them in two years. Baby Girl was 1 1/2 years old. Now we’ve got a crazy one-year-old boy added to our family.
Honestly, I was nervous about meeting up with them. We don’t chat much on the phone or even through emails. Sometimes reunions like that can be awkward. I didn’t need to worry, though, because we enjoyed the company so much! I didn’t feel like it was at all awkward. And I was sad to see the evening end.
I’m so thankful we could see them! I’ve mentioned before, we haven’t met any new friends here. My man and I love to entertain and hang out with friends. Friday was just what we needed!
Thanks, Jeff & Mandy for making time to see us! We hope you’ll be back again next year!
(Thankful we took the pictures when we did. Moments later we had a lovely diaper change, which required Buddy to run around sans clothes for the rest of the evening.)
