I would never claim to be an expert on any topic, but if I had to claim one, it would be how to have meaningful long distance friendships. Over the past couple of years, I’ve learned how to keep up with friends who I don’t see on a day-to-day basis and how to make those relationships last. Sometimes, that means something as simple as a text or a phone call; other times, it means driving seven hours in one day just to spend three hours with said friend. This weekend, it meant going to Charleston to celebrate a wedding.
My friend Anna from camp got married on Saturday, and eight of us from camp decided to rent a house together so we could have a place to stay for her wedding. We arrived on Friday evening, and from the minute we all got in the house, we laughed and laughed. While the wedding was our main priority, we managed to eat at some great Charleston spots as well as hop over to the beach before we left on Sunday afternoon.
It was such a fun weekend, and I’m so thankful for these friends. They will always be worth the sacrifice of a weekend away, money, time, etc. I couldn’t have imagined a more fun weekend to celebrate Anna + Don!
