Home Is Where The Heart Is

So I got home tonight from a 4 day trip to Tucson, Arizona! My long time great friend Mesa moved there almost 2 years ago and her sweet husband decided to surprise her for her birthday and flew me out to see her!! I took little man with me and he was the perfect traveling companion! Mesa and her husband were great host, making me breakfast each morning and seeing that I had all I needed for a nice stay! It was great staying up late nights laughing and talking about the old days (we met in 7th grade). I think we both loved watching our boys play, I drug her on a walk one evening but I think she secretly loved it!! :) I also introduced her to the world of Cracker Barrel, mmm (for those that don't know it is a great homey place to eat). One morning I was able to go running and it began to rain, it was actually an awesome thing to be running under a grey sky on a gravel road out in the middle of nowhere thinking only "one foot in front of another".

In my life I have been so blessed to have many friends that I have known for a long time and there is nothing like being around someone that just "knows" you. They know where you are coming from, they know who you are and why you are that way. It was a very nice weekend! Thanks so much Mesa, Mark and Nate!! Love you guys

I must say though that I missed my hubby and my girls terribly, and while coming home wasn't to "my" home it is where my heart is!

What a nice surprise for Mesa and for you! I'm glad you had a good time catching up and getting a little time with just James!

Great friends are the best! I totally agree with how nice it feels to be with someone that completely knows you. No trying involved. What a fun trip! :-)

I know how you feel. I too have a BFF from 7th grade who was able to come to town with her family(you may know Hans Rawhouser from High School?) for the holidays. It is so healing and rejuvenating to be with people who know us so well and still love us so true. :)

I'm glad you got to spend time away with your friend. Your run sounds lovely. I can totally relate to that feeling. :)
