road trip

I packed up the car and headed to meet friends. A really dear friend from college and some other girls I hadn't met in person but felt like I knew in college.
The blanket made the trip. (Yeah, that's right. I started that in May of '08. That's three years ago, but who's counting.) I knit two rows.
A very special friend was having a very special birthday. She didn't know I was coming. I am smiling now just thinking about me walking into her home. (I did have a big fear that she might not know who in the world I was.)
This picture is so perfect to me. A bit blurry like the evening, like something that happened in a dream. I can't even find the words to describe how I felt. It was just downright awesome. Like each of them.
I also got to meet my college friends twins. I could honestly eat them.
It was one of those weekends. And I feel so blessed to have lived it.

So I have to ask - are all the H's in the background at a public venue or a private home and who is H - last name, name of restuarant, … like the idea. Do tell! Great blog share b/t/w - love the pix of the back of the car :)

There's nothing like going on a good road trip to have fun and build friendships. Nothing but the road, the car, and your friends around you... wonderful stuff that can result in some great memories! From the looks of it you had a spectacular time during the road trip!
