I can't believe I forgot to mention that when we were in Denver 3 weeks ago, I hung out with one of my very best friends from high school, Sarah (Protzman) Howlett. And I got to meet her Irish husband! Sarah and I have been writing actual letters (for those of you who don't know what that is, it's when a real pen meets a piece of paper) since we graduated HS. She went to college in Missouri and I stayed in Texas. Then she moved to Colorado after college, lived in New York for 3 years, then back to Colorado. Her parents moved to Colorado soon after we graduated HS, so she didn't have a reason to visit Dallas anymore. She is very special to me and I am so glad I got to see her beautiful face for 2 days.
