I have been away from my blog for a few weeks. Why, you ask? I'll tell you. My best friend in the whole wide world came for a visit. She was here for two weeks. Two weeks that flew past in the blink of an eye. Two weeks packed full of time on the beach, time in coffee shops, cafes, restaurants. Time doing tourist activities like visiting Australia Zoo and Sydney. Hours and hours of talking. If we weren't sleeping, we were talking. Hours spent doing life together, just being us. Cooking. Organizing. Shopping. Laughing. Two weeks that are etched into my memory bank with the heading "two of my favorite weeks EVER!"
Shay and I have been friends for more than 20 years now. Nearing our 40's, being busy Moms with study and work thrown into the mix sometimes leaves us feeling less ENERGETIC than we were 20 years ago. This trip, though we weren't filled with the ENDLESS ENERGY we had in our late teens/early 20's, was packed with a renewed ENERGY we both enjoyed. It was fun to just be two girls again. Especially in Sydney where we explored the City, adventured, got ourselves lost and then found our way, walked miles and miles, were silly and crazy. We rode on buses, monorails, and a boat! We ate good food. We ate bad food. We discovered the dessert of a lifetime. Perfect for lifelong friends ....
