Jenn came and stayed with me for a few days, interrupting my state of unhappiness and turning it into something more cheerful.
She arrived on Monday evening and we went out to an old-fashioned diner for burgers and milkshakes. We also saw a really heart-warming film, “My Sister’s Keeper.”
On Tuesday we grabbed Kerrie for the day. We went vintage clothes shopping before heading to a local Spanish restaurant for tapas and a pitcher of Sangria.
We then did more shopping at local boutiques. (I was really good and only purchased a sparkling martini pin and a vintage beaded purse). It felt good to be surrounded by my two closest friends and to see them getting along so wonderfully.
After Kerrie went to work, Jenn and I did more shopping at some designer stores downtown, where Jenn bought a really cute dress for herself and a flannel shirt for her boyfriend.
We then had dinner with my boyfriend Rian at a popular pizzeria in midtown.
It was a lovely weekend.
This morning it was devastating to see her leave. As her car drove away, my heart felt heavy. She’s only been gone for less than a day and I miss her terribly. It’s hard not having your sister live in the same town, or even the same state.
