We had friends staying with us from Vancouver, BC. Actually, we were friends many years ago in college… in Chile.
It is funny to think, that we met over 22 years ago, while studying, and growing up.
Now, on the other side of the world, 22 years later and many experiences on us, we meet again, still growing up.
In our home. A place I shared in letters and photos with her when we bought it 18 years ago, and now here gathering for more stories together. Four kids running around, and many years to catch up with.
We shared drinks, made breakfast and dinners together, talked around the table and around a fire.
Made things together.
On a side note If you live here in Portland, or close enough to visit, you should go see the new exhibit there, Mummies of the World. For us it was perfect after having studied Ancient Egypt in the spring. It is an amazing exhibit.
And of course, had s’mores.
And sat together, telling stories, riddles, whittling, laughing, growing closer together these kids of ours that hadn’t really met. But us adults had many stories and adventures together from long ago, that keeps us closer, even with the passing of time.
