so, I have this group of friends.
you may remember them?
because they rock.
we all 'formed' our friendships in Nebraska but within this past year and a half our friendships are being refined by physical distances.
there are only a few people of the original group left in Nebraska.
four of us have moved away.
these are my PEOPLE people.
so, one of my PEOPLE just moved to a town 2.5hrs away over a month ago and we JUST got to connect this past Saturday.
MY PEOPLE were IN TOWN, IN MY HOUSE!!!!!
Jake and I love both of these people intensely.
I was a dork and busted out the door with tears when Liz drove up.
I am also a dork because I got all of four pictures and one of them was just of the food.
(it was worthy...trust me)
So, just like Thursday night, I have no picture of me and Liz.
but, as you can see, she is still beyond beautiful.
inside, outside, all around.
(Todd, you could use a razor but other than that...you weren't too bad either, I guess...it's just that your wife is beautiful...fierce competition.)
our girls, of course, remembered each other and picked right back up where they left off....kinda like their mommies.
we talked and talked and talked and hung out with the kids.
and then we ate.
this particular set of PEOPLE happen to love food in the same way Jake and I love food/restaurants/cooking.
because of that, and because I hardly cook anymore and was missing it, I went TO TOWN.
my heart was all filled up by the time the kids were in complete melt down and everyone had to say good-bye for now.
but now it's ON and we will be headed down their way in about three weeks so it wasn't so sad this time.
gosh, I love me an old friend.
even cleaning up my house that morning before they got there I had to laugh.
my people have seen me at my best and and my worst, I was really just cleaning for me...
I love that feeling!
and the food will be getting it's own post next....
my dad would be proud.
