Friends

20111216-201504.jpgIt’s funny how friendships evolve isn’t it?

This is a recent picture of  my friend Andrea and her family in Disney World.  Michael and I met Andrea and her husband through a mutual acquaintance a number of years ago.  The relationship with the acquaintance didn’t go anywhere but Andrea and I really hit it off.

How could we not get along? We both know that a drive on the Turnpike does not lead to accurate conclusions regarding what New Jersey has to offer.  She has childhood memories of visiting the Jersey shore.  She knows what a “guido” is and probably went to school or “gasp” dated one.

Even though our lives have caused our friendship to go through patches of  seeing each other only occasionally,  I have always felt like we could just pick up where we left off.  We just seem to “fit” .  Thankfully life circumstances are allowing us to see each other more regularly lately…..and it has been a lot of fun.  Our friendship is one of the blessings for which I am grateful as I look back at the year 2011.

So, thank you Andrea for being my friend.  Merry Christmas to you and your sweet family.

And thank you for the two guys with which you are standing.  Our family became well acquainted with Phineas and Ferber at your condo and we have enjoyed their friendship ever since.

    God definitely knew what he was doing when he brought 2 Jersey Girls together in the South! It’s great to have someone who can relate to my former life near the shore! You guys are a blessing to us as well. You are one classy & thoughtful lady! Looking forward to many more years of Friday night dinners, trying to have conversations over loud kid voices and long summer afternoons at the pool trying desperately to tire the kids out….
    Thanks for the post–I am flattered & honored to be immortalized forever via WordPress! :-). Now, if we could just somehow get Hugh Jackman to come to Michaels bar, life would be totally complete! 😉
