Yesterday we drove up to Los Angeles to visit for the first time since we moved 5 months ago. I kept telling myself that I don't miss the traffic and the smog and that I love living in San Diego so I can't really miss LA all that much. I was so wrong. There were lots of tears as we drove through West LA and were able to visit friends (and of course Sew Modern).
I miss it so much more than I realized and a big part of that is the friends that we made over the past 7 years. This has made me reflect a lot on friends and the importance of having good friendships in my life.
I love that I can get together with friends I haven't seen in a few months or talk to friends I haven't seen since college and we are still friends. And I am so grateful to have made friends through quilting and blogging. In a way you are all my friends, some of you I know better than others and some of you I hope to get to know more in the future.
