Probably the best part of the trip was getting to introduce Meredith to some of the most important people in my life, people that have known me longer than anyone who lives near me in Boston. I wish we had gotten pictures with everyone, but here is a small sampling.

|another good childhood friend|
|a new friend and her precious little guy|
|my "uncle" neil|
|good family friend|
It's funny how at home I felt with various people I haven't actually lived near for nearly ten years. I found myself more at ease with people I never really considered best friends simply because they knew and loved me through many years and those awkward middle school years. There's something special about being around people who have known you from early in your life. It's not until I'm around those relationships that I realize how much I miss that up here. I'm so thankful I got a taste of it this past week.
