my dear friend lisa and i spent the entire day together – something we rarely did when we lived in the same city! We woke up, spent some time with her 2 adorably expressive little girls, then headed out for an entire day of lisa & kelly F.U.N.
there was breakfast in northwest portland. pedicures at the aveda salon. lunch at Elephant’s Delicatessen. wandering around downtown. there was even some looking through trash magazines (you know, People, US, the guilty pleasures). there were conversations about how much we love being 30-something – about the freedom, security, fearlessness, and youthfulness of it. more conversations about our struggles, the purposes of them. i’ve said this before, but lisa is my friend probably most like myself, which in some ways is so fun and validating at the same time.
i am blessed. by the time i fall asleep, i’m ready for art and soul to begin the following day, and i’m feeling full. full of brightness, and of warmth. i really needed this trip.
