As you can see, we had quite a day today. Flanna's BFF from school came over for a playdate. We spiffed up our pool from last summer, which was in amazingly good shape! (hooray for garages!) And then we spent most of the afternoon outside hanging with the neighbors. I love those all day outside kind of days! The kids even had their snacks outside--a spontaneous picnic. And we moms sipped iced tea and, later, iced coffee. It was such a treat!
And the best part was getting to watch Flanna with her three little friends, while I got to chat with my neighbor friend of my own.
All in all, I'd rate this day as stellar.
Friends do that. You know, make things stellar.
By the way, I'm really enjoying this blog about friendship. Being kinda new in a new town, and anticipating moving again in a year or so really makes me appreciate the gift of good friends.
Are you intimidated by the thought of making new friends? If you had to move and leave your best friends behind, would you actively search out new friendships, or just try to let them develop naturally?
