Surprise!

My dear friend Cindy in Florida called me yesterday morning and said “find me a plane ticket I am coming to visit you.” I thought…no problem when did you want to come? I’d love to see you! What a surprise when she said tomorrow or Monday! Wow! Talk about short notice! Needless to say I spent the rest of the day finding a plane ticket for her. I’m still amazed that she was able to get a round trip ticket from Florida to Seattle, WA for less than 400.00 with buying it less than 24 hours before she was going to fly.
It has been almost a year since we last seen her and Bruce. We went to visit them one last time before our move to Washington. We had dinner and drinks and most importantly we came up with the idea for a restaurant that is going to make us all millionaires one day! This was shortly after Baby Emma’s visit. We said our tearful goodbyes and D and I headed out on our Great Adventure! What an adventure it has been! Unfortunately Bruce isn’t able to come due to work but I’m thrilled to have Cin for this visit!
The thing is her flight times weren’t all that great. She did have to get up at about 3 am this morning to make it to the airport for a 6:50 flight. She has a short layover in Atlanta. All in all this isn’t so bad though. She should land here in Seattle around 12.12 if all goes as planned.
D is going to take of some things this morning and then we are going to head out to the airport to pick her up! I can’t even explain my excitement! Cindy and I have the kind of friendship that will always remain. No matter where life takes us or how far apart we are. The kind of friendship that is more like sisterhood. I love you Cin!
