Nursing school ended (well at least the term) on Monday night and I feel like I’ve been given the best gift every back – the gift of time. This fall has been so busy, the thing that I cut out the most was socializing with and just “being there” for all my friends. I used to take long dog walks during the day with pals, go out to lunch, meet up to go shopping, drop off stuff because they were sick – but with so many things crammed into the fall, I really let all those extra things go. Which is a shame because there really is nothing like keeping up with someone day-to-day and not just once every three months or so. Last night, I got to spend some time with some of my youngest friends (well, I was babysitting for their parents) and I got these amazing cookies in return! As I showed up when all the kids were asleep, somehow I feel like I got the better end of the deal.
