For me, the autumn season brings with it a sense of nostalgia associated with a new school year, football games, bonfires, and huge leaf piles of years gone past. Recently, I was able to relive a few of those memories during a girls’ getaway weekend with my BFFs! The number of years we have known each other will never be revealed, but the word “decades” comes to mind.
At a little white farmhouse in the country, we sat together and laughed once again as past stories were revisited and felt sadness for those life-changing moments that are out of our control. We explored our temporary retreat wondering about the history of the house (“What exactly is that creepy log building with all the farm implements hanging on it?!”) and we watched the cows as they wondered about us. Ignoring all so-called diets or noshing protocol, we ate whatever we wanted (including the wonderful handmade chocolates we purchased at the local candy store). Yes, the weekend was perfect!
Although I was somewhat sad to say goodbye as our weekend came to an end, I also came away with a sense of tranquility. The weekend was, indeed, restful. More so, I was at peace with the knowledge that not only do my girls and I have a history that no one can take away from us, but I am blessed that we can continue making new memories. That was the best part of my weekend! (Followed closely by the chocolate : P ).
