Well I had the most lovely weekend. My only regret is that it could not last forever.
My sister Jenn visited me! We have been best friends for the past 14 years. You may remember I was in her wedding six months or so ago...
Obviously, she is incredibly fabulous.
I felt a little plain in comparison, but don't feel sorry for me. I enjoyed basking in her glow!
We spent the weekend watching movies, drinking wine, pigging out on junk food, and of course, shopping!
Jenn has excellent taste. Here is a painting of a dog she bought her husband. (The dog face in the painting is the splitting image of their puppy Charlie).
I can't even begin to describe how wonderful it was to spend the weekend with Jenn. Even though we live four hours apart, we don't get to see each other that often. Jenn is usually extremely busy with her musicals (she is a professional singer and stage actress) and I am usually without transportation or money.
To say I had an awesome time with her is an understatement. It was the most spectacular weekend in history!
Nothing is more heart-warming than spending time with a close friend who has blossomed (and wilted, occasionally) with you over the years.
When we first became best friends, we were two 13-year-old girls who shared a passion for horror films, tennis, and the Spice Girls.
Today, we still feel like those two little girls from seventh grade, but we know we must have changed. (I hope, haha).
After all, we've been through millions of life-changing adventures together ( nerve-wracking dance recitals, boring summer jobs, ski trips, graduations, breakups, marriage etc.).
It's nice to have someone like that in my life. A friend who I know is never going to disappear on me.
I'm kind of depressed she went back home this afternoon. Because now I'm left alone, to continue on in my boring, dismal life.
