Monday: I got to have lunch with Joy and spend time with her little girl Ellie and Adam and I had a wonderful time at the Landers' for dinner. Thank you so much!
Tuesday: Coffee in the morning with Veda and then I spent the day with my dear friend Heather who is expecting to have a girl in June! With shopping, food, and catching up on life, we had a great time. Our husbands joined us for dinner at Not Your Average Joe's (one of my favorite restaurants!)
Heather with our guys
Wednesday: Lunch with Heather before I see her clinic in the South Shore, a visit to the Hoits to see Samantha and Wesley, and dinner with Jerald and Abbey at Border Cafe (some of the best fajitas...)

Thursday: Lunch with Morgan, Tea with Lisa A, Coffee with Sandra, Dinner with Dan and Merri at Brown Sugar Cafe followed by Angora for frozen yogurt....It was a great day!

The wonderful Liz & Paul Joyal
Ok, so I had such a great time talking to everyone over the week that I actually lost my voice!!! It was kind of funny and pretty ironic! Needless to say, we enjoyed eating at some of our favorite places while enjoying the fellowship of such wonderful friends.
We left Boston early in the morning to land in Raleigh around 8:30am to unload and re-pack for FLORIDA.......
