before - part 2

Extending the said love from the previous post we also spent some delicious time with this new family of FOUR*. Ah, beautiful time spent with wonderful dear friends fills me with so much nourishment and joy. Even though we don't get to see each other on a daily, weekly or even monthly basis, due to distance, the time we do get to spend together just oozes with richness and a focus that was not quite there when we lived a mere few minutes away from each other. The time is lapped up and milked for every second in each other's company.
I really find that for me distance has worked in largely two ways, one by creating an emotional distance and a loss of connection with some friends but then in other cases the distance has fostered something that is so very special and rich. So although there is sometimes a remnant sadness of those relationships that have fallen by the wayside there is an overall sense of wonderfulness as other relationships have absolutely thrived and grown. I guess this also just happens in life, as people change and grow.
* Excuse the excessive baby photos of Marcel but really as you can see he is totally adorable and ridiculous irresistible.

  1. I agree. The friends we have stayed in contact with over the last 14 years has dwindled considerably but the ones we do see, when we do see them they visit us and we get to enjoy them for days instead of hours. X
