A few months ago, our long time friend Boris contacted us trying to schedule a get together during his trip to the states. When we last saw Boris, we were spending a great New Year’s in the Alps and planning to move to France for a spell. This was post-dogs/pre-kids on the Reeves’ timeline and doesn’t seem too long ago.
San Diego was the last stop before heading back home to France and everything lined up. Boris and family were traveling with a friend and her son and we all got together for breakfast, thinking that we’d probably eat something quick and then go on to do some sightseeing, but both assumptions were wrong. We took our time during breakfast talking about life and our past adventures a few of which might still be on the internet if someone were to look hard enough.
Turns out that everyone was really hoping for an easy, fun day that did not involve any ticket purchases or waiting in line. Our group quickly decided to split up and the girls and I (Karine and Nathalie) would go get pedicures and do a little shopping while the boys would go surfing.
Time goes by really fast when you are having fun! We got back to our house later in the afternoon and put together what I call an ‘all hands on deck’ kind of dinner, where basically everyone helps getting diner ready. Somehow, at our house that is pretty much how all diner parties end up, we chat, we remember the old times, we talk about new happenings, we cook a little. We had the most wonderful time with Boris, his wife Karine, their three kids, their friend Nathalie (we are so glad to have made a new friend) and her son and of course our friends Andrea, Andy and their kids. There is nothing like having friends to celebrate life.
