My Mini Trip

So, my trip to Ottawa was very, very nice. As we all say so often, the anticipation was much worse than the trip itself. I hadn't seen my wonderful friend in approx. 2 years. She is one of those friends you can just pick up with no matter how long it's been. We have always had a strong connection and this time was no different. In fact, I felt the connection even more with this visit.

I shared our sweet Nicholas with her. I shared his scrapbook, I shared some stories, we shared some tears. We talked a little about her pregnancy and her plans and that was okay. She is a beautiful person, a fantastic mom (I finally got to meet her almost 2 year old - cutie!) and a friend I am so honored to have in my life.

The Tulip Festival was on in Ottawa last week. Here are few of the shots. It was really, really beautiful.

The tulips are beautiful, and I'm glad you had a good restorative trip. Sometimes there is no substitute for an old girlfriend, and that rambling conversation of women where it is all support and love, and every emotion is acceptable. Much love.

The tulips are just beautiful.

SO glad that you were able to have a good time, share Nicholas, and have some time w/ a friend. Those tulips are so beautiful, at first glance I thought the first one was a painting!

Beautiful! I'm happy you had a nice time and we're able to reconnect with your friend.

Thank you for supporting me. I hope to do more of it for you. :)

Oh Lea, I'm glad you got a little R&R. Your friend sounds special. The tulips are beautiful. I love tulips - they're what I take to Emma when I visit her grave.
