I have mentioned my best friend Samantha on the blog here before.
Sam and I have been friends since middle school. Scary to think... that was TWENTY FREAKING YEARS AGO.
But anyway, now we are all grown up, Sam is married to a ridiculously nice guy and has three ridiculously entertaining children. And, despite the fact that we live less than an hour away from each other, we only see each other a couple times a year.
Life just gets in the way sometimes. But we both know, if there's ever an emergency, the other is always ready, willing and able to help out.
This week's emergency? "Valerie - I need jewellry to go with my new dress for next weekend!!!!"
So anyway - it was a reason to go spend the afternoon with her... ....that ridiculously nice guy she married....(don't ask what he's doing to his face... you don't really want to know...)
....and her three ridiculously entertaining children....It was a great visit - and I think we need to come up with more "emergencies"
