Bringing Together Old Friends

04 Jun

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.

    Scattergories is one of the all time best games ever! My friends and family love to play it. Nice blog by the way.
