I’ve been pretty lucky throughout the years to have some really great friends in my life. This weekend, I was able to spend some time with one of my favorites – my close college friend Kim. We haven’t seen each other in about two and a half years, but I always find it amazing how with those who truly “get” us, you can just pick up like we saw one another the day before.
Though our visit was short – only a little more than 24 hours – we still managed to spend a little time playing tourist. Kim got the true DC experience (yes, a ride on the Metro), we checked out the new MLK Memorial, watched a little Super Bowl, and as expected, spent a lot of time talking, laughing, and remembering some of the crazy things we did once upon a time.
Today we took a little trip over to Georgetown. We had a nice lunch, checked out a couple of the shops, took a peek at the Riverfront, and hit another DC tourist spot – Georgtown Cupcakes (from TLC fame … check out how great our cupcakes look).
It had been entirely too long since we’ve spent some time together, so it was definitely great to see her! I really do believe that there are people who are put into our lives for a reason, and Kim is definitely one of them. Here’s hoping that this year can bring many more visits with many more great friends!
