“There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.”
― Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey
Robby and I had the JOY & DELIGHT of spending time with both sets of college friends during the holidays. It amazes me that time nor distance has changed our affection for our friends, but rather strengthened it! I guess that is a sign that we love whole heartedly and not “by halves” as Jane Austen put it.
The first group was my college girls. We gathered together in Miranda’s adorably chic and comforting home (thanks for hosting, Mir! The food was FANTASTIC!) and caught up on life. It has been nearly 2 years since al of us could join together with our male counterparts, and it’s been 1 whole year since the group of girls were together at our engagement party. What a delight it was to see the all of our friends, the husbands and boyfriends, meet the new babies that have joined our lives, and have all of us together.
THEN! We went to Rockport for New Years and celebrated with Robby’s friends.
Unfortunately Sam got sick and wasn’t able to join us, but he was in Rockport with us. The guys played golf and enjoyed the warm weather at the coast. I soaked up the alone time and read for most of New Years Eve on the back porch over looking the water. *sigh* Wish I could be there now!
And OF COURSE we had to go to Boiling Pot while we were there. It was good, possibly even better than the time that I cooked it on my own!
Robby went to the Cotton Bowl to watch the Texas A&M Aggies win with his college friends. Love this group of guys!
What a great way to wrap up the end of 2012 – with lots of friends! We love you all and miss you dearly.
