A couple of weeks ago I sent my friend Nerma this message:

“Would you teach me about makeup? Apparently I missed that class in high school and you got an A+.”

You may remember Nerma from the day of trying on wedding dresses.  She’s fresh out of college and worked for a while as our …

resolutions

Tonight I attended a local writing group for the first time and had a terrific evening. I walked in feeling pretty sad (more on that tomorrow) and by the end of the evening I was laughing hysterically.

The scavenger hunt

pregame2

With six weeks and 2,500 miles between us, Mr. Blue Eyes and I needed a time to have fun together.  We still talk for a couple hours most nights, but sometimes those conversations just serve to highlight the distance between us.

So I decided it was time to have an evening to laugh together! Play …
