Sometimes, the fact that I live far away from all my friends and family is a good thing. Every year I visit Chicago, maybe one to two times, to see my family for the holidays or during the summer. It’s hard being away from them since I have a baby and my mom doesn’t get to see her very often. Even my best friend lives in Northern Indiana and I often reminisce about our summers together. Especially, the summer we ate an entire 5 lb tub of cookie dough. That probably sounds gross but it was so good!
Anyway, I usually keep in touch with friends on Facebook and let them know when I’d be visiting. I ask them to catch me up on people I haven’t talked to in awhile and often they haven’t talked to them either. So when I arrive for my visit, all of my friends and college acquaintances get together for a mini reunion. And even though they live in close proximity of each other, they hadn’t seen each other since the last time I was in town, so it’s wonderful that I’m able to bring them together to catch up.
This most recent time, I invited my friends over for my brother’s graduation party and we enjoyed some food, laughter and a fun game of Scattergories. Things can get pretty heated over ridiculous answers and I miss the friendly combative banter. It’s good to have old friends together again.
