Today’s Daily Post prompt asks us where we would go if we could set life aside for awhile and go to live with a family anywhere in the world. My answer is kind of boring to most of you, I guess, but I’m going to say it anyway. I would go to Croatia and stay with friends.
One of my best friends, Katie, is having a baby sometime in the next week or so. It’s her first child, a daughter to be named Veronica. I’m so happy for her, and can’t wait to meet my new niece. But since Katie lives on the other side of the world, it might be a year or more before I get to see either her or Veronica, and that kind of tugs on my heart strings.
For the last few days, I’ve been remembering how lovely it was to be with my other best friend Trinity when her son was born. It’s been amazing to have a solid visual memory of Leo literally from Day 1. I’d really love to have that opportunity with Veronica, too. I guess I’ll have to make up for it by sending really awesome toys, and hoping for photos.
