^^ look ma! I have no eyes.
Sunday was one of those days. You know those magical days where the sun is shining, sleep-ins are allowed and the wind blows past your hair, sprinkling goodness over you in the process? Yeh, it was one of those days.
We brunched, we explored, we laughed, we made friends with animals and we drank rose lemonade. The wind cooled us down, as the more-summer-than-spring sun warmed us up again. We celebrated our dear friends birthday, we tried to figure out what the 'biodynamic' meant in 'biodynamic eggs', and we talked about the prospect of me turning vegetarian (but more on that in a later post).
It's nice to have friends. And while I know that is an obvious statement, I don't think it's really something I understood until now. All my life I have been surrounded by people who were there just out of convenience I suppose. We went to school together, or uni or church and while we were close, sisters even, once you take away the standing structure of the organisation we shared, we found out we didn't actually have all that much in common except for the course we were studying or the God we were worshipping.
It's healthy to be surrounded by people who get who you are, what you do and what you stand for. You can come from all different walks of life and still understand each other and still be able to make the other person feel whole.
Friendship is a beautiful thing and I think I have to stop taking it for granted.
