Today my mom forwarded me an email. Thinking it was one of those “how to drop 10 pounds in 10 days” kind of articles I ignored it (she’s a sucker for those get fit quick diets) The morning started to drag on, so I decided to clean out my Inbox. I finally stumbled upon my mom’s email and decided to see what she had sent me this week.
I scrolled to the bottom and saw that instead it was a forwarded email conversation between my parents.
Call me when you get a minute, we have to sign those papers for the contractor! Love you
No problem! Email them over. Have a great day!

Here’s the proposal!
Subject: Shoup Proposal
I DO, I DO, I DO!!!!!!!!!!!
It took me a minute to realize my dad was accepting my mom’s “proposal” Aren’t my parents the cutest??
Sorting through my emails, I found a few from my two best friends Kim and Crippen. I spent the rest of the day emailing with the two of them. It’s so hard to stay in touch sometimes because we’re all busy with our own jobs, and not to mention we live hundreds of miles apart.
One way we’ve managed to deal with the distance is always plan the next time we’re going to see each other. I’ve never said goodbye to either one of them without planning ahead of time when we’ll see each other again. I can’t wait until Labor Day Weekend when the three of us are going to FSU for the first football game!! It’s going to be an AWESOME weekend.
But recently I’ve realized that after this get together, I won’t know when I’ll see either of them again. Two weeks after our reunion weekend I’m leaving for Rhode Island, and then I’m off to anywhere in the U.S. It’s kind of scary.
I brought this sore subject up in our email chat today, and we all three decided to make a pact. Since we’re all busy with our lives, we’ll make it a point to get together at least once a year, regardless where we all live. That was the easy part, the hard part was deciding where we should go
I’ve already visited Kim at her hometown in Maryland…
And Kim and Crippen have already visited me in Orlando.
We’ve cruised around the Caribbean…
We’re stumbled along Bourbon Street together….
And have taken over VEGAS baby!!
We’ve traveled across Europe and seen some of the most beautiful sights the world has to offer…
So the REAL question is, where to next??
Have a great Wednesday! Don’t forget to enter my GIVEAWAY for a chance to win Mama Pea’s book “Peas and Thank You”!!!!
How do you manage to stay in touch with friends who live far away?
