This Old Friend

Catching up with old friends is so important. I took some time over the Easter holiday to reconnect with a friend from my teenage years. He was actually my boyfriend once upon a time when parents drove us to the movies and we walked to each other's houses to hang out. Seems like a lifetime ago.

There's something therapeutic in speaking to people who knew you at different stages in your life. We marvelled at how much time had passed, yet how easy it was to pick back up. Every few years we connect somehow. In the early university years I ran into him while I was visiting my friend at school. A while after that I invited him to my cousin's birthday party. A bit later we started chatting online. This past summer I ran into him downtown where I was throwing my cousin's bachelorette party. Funny how small the world is.

Anyways, high school boyfriend is completely artistic and also loves dogs. He creates fantastic videos in his studio, one of which I'm blogging about on Wednesday for my favourite things post.

That's it for now lovelies. If you haven't done so recently, get in touch with an old friend. You'll be happy you did.

It's so nostalgic, right? Definitely something special about reconnecting with people from your past. Like they know you in a way that so few other people do.

Hope you are having a wonderful week, Love!
