I spent my first weekend away from the boys and visited my high school friends that I hadn”t seen in 7 years to celebrate a graduation and a 30th birthday! The five of us that spent our Saturday nights at Village Inn writing poetry and making a mess, way too much time on our makeup, countless hours laughing together (and let”s not forget the cat fights)–we met up for our own mini reunion and girls trip.
I love the desert, at least for a snapshot in time; I couldn”t see myself living there. I love the vast expanses, the intensity of the heat and vegetation, the sort of hollow sounds everything seems to make–crunching rocks, birds pecking. It was a great weekend. We enjoyed the sun, had a lovely brunch at a fancy resort, did some shopping, got pedicures, and my girlfriend redyed my hair just like old times! Solo plane rides will never be the same for me, after carting a baby around on one. I was so relieved to not have to put on my circus hat and entertain a wee one for three hours, and instead pick up a good book and the snacks I brought and bunker down for a few hours–really a rare treat for a mama!
Many thanks to my dear husband who watched Uly all weekend so I could partake in the fun. You”re the best, babe.
