so grown up
Sunday, August 12, 2007
It was such a surprise to me to find this little girl talking and running and just waaay more grown-up than I was prepared for! I'm her "Aunt Jen" though there's no physical relation, and I hadn't seen her in more than a year, but she warmed right up to me and by the end of my time there she distinctly declared that "I want to keep you!"
Her mom is one of my dearest friends, and I always always am refreshed by my conversations with her. She encourages me and empathizes with me and listens and shares and I can tell her anything at all.
I had such a great time...getting away from my "normal" life for a few days, good conversation, lots of laughs and a fantastic whale-watching trip. "Oma" was my travel companion, and she's always good for those "make you think" kind of questions…and for keeping her granddaughter busy while I caught up with my friend!
Boston is a really great city...I lived half of my life about 4 hours away, and have no idea why I haven't been there more often!
