How would you like a phone call at nine in the evening from friends that you haven't seen in 16 years? Wanting to meet you the very next day? Well that is just what I did. They said "YES". Sixteen years ago my family left sunny California for Raleigh, NC. At that time many families were leaving California to many different states for lots of different reasons. Two friends of ours moved to Durango, Colorado. We tried to stay in touch, but you know how that goes. You get busy with kids and all that great stuff that goes along with raising a family.
We met today at the Double Tree Hotel in Durango, Colorado for lunch. What a wonderful day it was. Catching up on all that we've done, how we all raised our kids and even comparing who had the most gray hair. (It was a tie).
Durango is the sweetest, little western town full of charm and great mountain crisp air. It is also full of warm and friendly people such as our friends. Hopefully we won't wait another 16 years for the next visit.
Tomorrow it's off to check out the quilt shops in Farmington.
