...to someone you grew up, and have been neighbors since you were a child? This is my friend Barbara.
I probably spent more time at her house as a child, than my own! They had the neighborhood pool and her parents also owned the neighborhood market. Hellooooo...I'm talking penny candy, ice cream..but best of all? Her Mom's roast dinner every Sunday. I don't think I missed more than one of those Sunday dinners in a month.
Barbara lost her dear Mother earlier this year, and has decided to make a new start in Cedar City, Utah where they purchased a home a few years back for their future retirement. We will keep in touch through the blog as I am demanding she start one of her own. I have to keep tabs on you Barb!
Can't forget the WII.
So back to my question...
how DO you say goodbye to a life long buddy?
It wasn't easy, but this is how we did it.
With a girl's breakfast out at a local 50's diner...
After all..we are 50's babes now. Followed by a A quick little shopping trip...
..and one last hug for the road. I have a feeling she won't be gone long.
We will see each other again real soon, I'm sure.
