Weekends in Wonderland

My camera battery died last week and I can’t find the charger so there are no pictures from this weekend. But I spent the weekend in Virginia celebrating a good friend’s baby shower.

That's Laura on the left and Jennie on the right

Laura and I were flatmates in London during our school’s summer program almost 10 years ago. We have maintained a long distance friendship – seeing each other and catching up once every year or two. It clearly had been too long since we last caught up since I almost deleted the baby shower evite – having no idea what-so-ever that Laura was expecting. But it was a wonderful surprise and, obviously, the perfect excuse to celebrate and visit. I got to meet Laura’s partner Javier and could see how much love they have for one another and the love of their friends and family at the shower and am so happy for their little girl to be a part of all of that love. Can not wait to visit again this summer to meet her. There’s no better excuse to visit an old friend than the welcoming of a new baby.

And one month from this weekend I get to visit Jennie, the other flatmate of ours in that picture above to celebrate her wedding. It’s great looking back at that time in London and I am so grateful that both of these girls are still a part of my life (as well as our other roomie – Melli – who is also expecting her second child this year – it’s certainly a very celebratory year for all of my London flatmates!!). I just wish we all lived closer and could see one another more often!
