So last weekend I was lucky enough to have my darling sister Rebecca come out for a visit. Being the mother of 8 kids, it was a lucky get away for me to have her visit. She was here from Thursday through Sunday. It was PERFECT! I don't think either of us have really had such a chance to visit for four days straight.... away from the craziness of our lives (her def. more than mine:)). I was reminded of the bond of sisterhood. There is nothing like family and I am once again reminded.
As soon as I picked her up from the airport, I was reminded of how her mannerisms are reminiscent of both growing up, and my Mom. She has such a warm inviting way that draws so many people to her. I was teasing her when we stopped at King of Prussia mall after picking her up from the Philladelphia airport. I don't think the store clerks were use to such a friendly, warm way. She had made a dozen or more friends within the first hour of visiting in the East. So refreshing!
A highlight was all of it really. It wouldn't be a proper girls trip without some good food, and good shopping. We enjoyed both. Don't worry Mike......mostly window:) haha:) Mike was and Tom were both wonderful to man the forts at home while we bonded. The weather was perfect and we especially enjoyed a fun and fancy lunch at the Hershey Hotel. She left two days ago and I am already homesick for her. Good thing I have more family coming to visit tomorrow.
