With our good friends Mary, Shannon, Aly, and Erin currently residing in Virginia, we have been desperately seeking opportunities to get together. We met last year during the holidays in Manchester, NH, Mary’s home town. Then we took the drive in April to Falls Church itself and spent some time hanging out in DC. And this summer, our friends returned to their favorite stomping ground (and ours, too)–Newport.
Our latest get-together in Atlantic City, NJ, was a perfect halfway point and offered plenty to do for our crew.
We plan to see everyone again in Boston over Thanksgiving weekend.
Geography presents a hurdle but never one insurmountable to the motivated. And motivated we are. Friendship deserves every effort, and we will continue to put forth every effort to sustain this one–between the adults and our children. One day the girls will be back in Newport to stay; but until then we will always find a way.
