hahahahah. That's how I first typed the first sentence to this post. Think I need a little more sleep?
...Moving from Baltimore was hard, but what was even harder was when Carron moved too. To Chicago.
I have so many good friends. I am lucky. But these days, I am learning that the friends who are most valuable are those who you can go a few days, or even weeks, without hearing from and just spend 10 minutes texting and feel like you are caught up. That you know you are both busy, and exhausted, and probably hungry, and that you care about each other just the same as if you lived five doors away.
When Clara and I were out visiting Carron last month (pre-vomit), the two of us decided to start a group pinterest board for recipes we had made that were so easy a monkey could make them. Because I usually have one monkey or another hanging on me while I'm cooking anyway. The board is here. Carron then started another board for books that we've read and would recommend here. I am not a good reader, in the sense that I get obsessed. Like oh I'll just read five more, wait five hundred more pages. And then I get annoyed. And then I get tired. And then I just have to finish the book. And then it's 3 a.m. I'm trying to teach myself restraint because I really do love to read.
I love keeping up with my friend this way. I love reading her recommendations, her comments. It's not the same as going for Starbucks and pedicures, but I'll take it.
