My friend Zarich lives in the London area, and we have known each other for 5 years now. But we had never met. We were both so excited to finally get the chance to see each other in person!
What was interesting was that it didn't feel like we were meeting for the first time. Nor did it feel like it was the first time meeting her husband Will. It was so comfortable and easy, which really shouldn't be a surprise since I do know Zarich very well! And I had heard so much about Will, I felt like I knew him, too.
We spent our afternoon together walking leisurely along the south bank of the Thames, then meeting up with the rest of our family by happenstance. (In all of London, who would have thought?)

We also got to visit with them again on Friday evening, when they came to dinner at our place. If we didn't have to leave early the next morning, I think we could have stayed up until the wee hours of the morning talking and drinking wine.
Will and Zarich are such a fun, smart, entertaining couple! I wished they lived nearby or at least closer because I could see us getting together a lot. Knowing that they are actually interested in moving over this way for a while excites me so much. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Will can find a job of interest on this side of the pond. We had such an amazing time with our new-but-not-really-new friends! I can't wait to meet up with them again. The Olympics, maybe?
