Happy October Days

The first few weeks of autumn always brings back memories of school and
old friends.  A couple of weeks ago I connected with an old friend.  We 
were so close as young teenage girls.  We laughed and shared our dreams.

I moved away, and met new friends, but I never met anyone who
ever quite took the place of the dear friend from my early teenage years.

My friend always stayed in the suburbs of Chicago, but I was filled
with wanderlust and set my sights on seeing the world.  Through the wonder of
the internet my old dear friend and I are reunited once again.  We have lots 
of catching up to do and lots of old happy memories to share.

These are truly happy October days for me.

I am joining Cielo this morning for

Bentley ~ someday soon I'll take you to Chicago and we can 
visit my friend Chris and I can show you where I grew up.

  1. Hello Susan, Found my way here through The Painted Garden...what a lovely post, wonderful story. Enjoy fall


  2. There is nothing like a friend you have known forever. You just go right back. I am friends with a girl I have known from my neighborhood since we were 3 and now we are in our 40s. She is like a sister.
