Christine is my best friend from college(she recently redecorated her house -- see last picture). Stephanie is another best friend who lived in a triple on the same floor(yes, Steph is traveling to Thailand with me -- and yes, everyone thinks we will cause some trouble(more Steph than me)!) We lived in the dorms my freshman year of college at Cal. We laughed all afternoon and caught up with seven other good friends. I had a blast! Oh, and the game was fun as well.
Nine of us made it. We included:
Dave Low, who lived on the second floor, brought an assortment of wines from his Anthill Farms label. Very nice wine! We also drank some Peter Michael L'Apres Midi and Rochioli.
Both Chris and Steph have known me since I was 18. Christine and I had a falling out of sorts following my break-up of my last serious relationship almost 2.5 years ago so we had a lot catching up to do. Time has healed things. I'm glad that we've now sorted things between us and renewed our deep and longstanding friendship. I've missed her as she has been like a sister to me.
