Old friends, new friends.

Yesterday my dear friend Leigh called to say that her family would be in our area and asked if we could join them for dinner. I excitedly agreed.

We met at a Mexican restaurant near their resort and thoroughly enjoyed spending the evening together. Leigh's daughter Lucy and my daughter Dots are the same age, and the two of them hit it off like long-lost best friends.

Our families minus Leigh and me.

Leigh and I have known each other since we were freshmen in college. She and I took a lot of classes together as we were both seeking our teaching certification, and we double dated often with the guys who are now our husbands. Leigh and Jim were both in our wedding... you get the idea.

I spent this afternoon in the million-degree attic above our garage searching for my college 'party pics.' I finally located them, including this one of Leigh and me and our friend Elizabeth.

Hmmm... maybe I should have stored my pictures somewhere climate controlled... this photo looks way too vintage.

(Elizabeth came over for lunch on Wednesday with her girls and I somehow neglected to get out my camera then (dadgummit). I'll try to include a current picture of her another time.)

As fun as it is to find a new friend,

Dots and Lucy

there's nothing like the blessing of an old friend.
