My fiance and I are en route to Pennsylvania, ready to take part in a friend’s birthday celebration this evening. I’ve known this friend for several years, and we enjoy the 2+ drive to her home every January. In some ways she reminds me of myself in my younger years, as she’s discovering many pop culture joys and trends later in life, like me. We also have a passion for Olympic game coverage, something that I loved watching with my best friend over the years.
During the drive over I made my regular weekend call to my grandparents. It was brief, but I enjoy talking to my grandparents regularly. I look forward to seeing them in the next couple weeks.
