The kids and I just spent a coupla days on LBI with some dear friends at their beach house. It's so wonderful to be with people who are so easy to be with. Audrey's younger son has the same interests as my son and the two oldest kids are much older than mine but at the age when they are patient and interested in my guys. They ask them questions and make them feel good because they're talking to them and they're cool. In fact, it is now even more of a dream that my beautiful little girl should marry Audrey's oldest son who happens to be 20 years old. He's such a nice guy. Cute, smart, kind, funny. And when M's 24 and he's 35 it'll be perfect. I would be lying if I said I didn't dream of having such a cool in-law experience (perhaps because of my own--see last post) for M AND me. Love them!
Anyhoo, I know I've talked about this before, but one of the things I love about my good good friends is the range of conversation we have. This visit's ranged from buying couches (and toilets!) for our houses to our and other women's, ahem, grooming habits (see, Jozette??). I can feel myself relaxing when I'm with my best girls and when I see who it is I'm friends with, I like who I am. Cool.
