This week we had the great treat of visiting with several people we haven't seen in years. On Wednesday we went to St. Louis to have dinner at the house of some of our very dear friends, the Davis', from our college days at Mizzou. We were joined by another former Columbia friend, Aaron Flater, who was in town on business. We were bummed the rest of his awesome family couldn't make it, but we were glad to catch up with him. We had a WONDERFUL visit! We picked up right where we left off as if no time has passed since our last meeting. We have such cherished memories of our friendships in our early married life/college days. I often wish we could go back to that time in our lives.

Today we had a fun open house (actually it was outdoors since the weather has been perfect here!) at my Aunt Cathy and Uncle Steve's house. Their son Andrew and his wife Traci and their adorable kids were visiting from Arizona. It was great to see them as well as visit with other extended family.

This week I've thought that this is what heaven is going to be like. We'll reunite with friends and family that we haven't seen in years. We'll get to hug them and catch up with each other and reminisce about great times shared together and pick up right where we left off. We'll get to introduce them to our children and grandchildren and get to meet theirs.

It's going to be great!
