at the beginning of august, brooke & brian came to visit.
it is hard to put into words how amazing the week was.
we went to the giants vs. pirates game.
we swam in the pool every day.
we took them down to newport & downtown disney.
brooke helped me with my orders.
scott & brian had great conversation.
my kids were and still are obsessed with them.
it was a week packed to the brim of excitement.
lots of tears were shed when we dropped them off at the airport.
it had been 14 months since i had seen brooke.
but there is something about being in the presence of your best friend.
life changes and things happen and we miss out on so much of it,
but we are able to pick up right where we need to.
it is the best. & i'm saving every penny for the next time.
i read this quote awhile ago & it reminded me of brooke and has stuck with me.
"i want to be around people that do things.
i don't want to be around people anymore that judge or talk about what people do.
i want to be around people that dream, and support, and do things."
brooke & brian.
you bring out the dreamer in both of us.
come back, i'll get the dominoes ready.
