weekend update: Stephanie takes Nashville!

Stephanie and I have been friends for a long time, specifically, since we were about 9. we met at the birthday party of a mutual friend (that we reminisced about on Thursday night), and I have to tell this story because it's so funny: the party was a sleepover and at some point during the night, Steph fell off a couch, woke up confused, and got into the closest sleeping bag- mine. soon after we started going to church together, took a little friendship break, and re-connected right before high-school, which we attended together. so, there's about a million funny memories and stories there.

I'm convinced there's nothing as comforting as old friends. bonus points if they are old friends from home, when now you live in a different place entirely. you can't help but wonder though: now that we're not in the same school/place, does our friendship still work? do we still have things in common/stuff to talk about? the short answer with Steph: yes. TOO many things to talk about. we both share interests and humor, and like Steph said, finally our passions & skills are complementary (her- photography, me- blogging.) it also helps that it's SO easy because she already knows essentially everything about me--and she still likes me! there are a handful of people on this earth that I don't think I could ever scare away by telling a really dumb joke or asking a stupid question- she's one of them.

SO- we had a great weekend. it was her first trip to Nashville, so while I wanted to pimp the city out to her, it was MUCH more laid-back than last weekend with my family. which was so perfect.

Saturday we went to Cummins Falls and I cannot WAIT to go back. I'm not sure if it's real, or man-made I mean. it seems too perfect. we also ate Mexican food nearly everyday, which we were both ok with. we had a couple fun nights out, (including night one of Live On The Green, Nashville's free music festival) where she got to meet some of my Nashville friends! oh- including Michael who also went to high-school with us. we surprised him and that was really really fun. we only broke out the real camera once, I mean, allllllll day on Sunday. that was super fun! otherwise we just snuck some iPhone pics which was so relaxing.

come again Steph! feeling thankful for friends. now excuse me while I take a nap that spans three days.

Aww it sounds like you have quite a great friend there Priya! I'm jealous that all your loved ones have come out to visit you! I'm always the one traveling so I'm sure it's fun to be the host once in awhile! I'll have to check out Nashville someday. It seems like it always has something going on!

It looks like you had an amazing weekend. I grew up in Wisconsin, and I agree that seeing friends from home is the best, most comforting feeling in the whole world. It's so great that your relationship has stayed this strong over time--I'm seeing all my friends from high school go different ways now and am so worried that we'll drift apart. Your friendship is really inspiring :)

Love, Gigi

Having people visit you makes you explore your city even more, and do those touristy things you've always wanted to do :)
