My BFF JJ is visiting for a week. We live on opposites side of the country; she's in California and I'm (usually) in New York.

But for the winter we relocate to South Carolina so My Honey can breathe and dare to walk outside. And it's a much nicer place for a California girl to visit.

Sometimes years have passed and we haven't seen one another. But we know we have one another to laugh with, cry with, lean on and support, through all that life has thrown our way. Health crises, children, divorce, weddings, good times and bad, deaths of parents, family dysfunctions, celebrations and recoveries. And we always pick up just as if we had seen each other yesterday.

And now we are celebrating a milestone birthday together. Neither of us is ready for this one! It's the topic of conversation among us and our friends. How did we get to be this old? Yikes, our mothers were REALLY OLD at this age!

But JJ and I will get through this together just as we have everything else. This time I think it will include a little wine, some great food, some shopping and a lot of conversation.

So I may not be around much this week cause my BFF is here but I'll share her with you later.
