I am not a big fan of getting older. (Every birthday I have, I pretend I don't care about the number, but that's really because I've spent the last 6 months "trying on" that age in my head, so by the time it rolls around, I'm almost used to it.) (Also, I am very Type A.)
I am a big fan of realizing that you've been friends with someone for over ten years.
I am an even bigger fan of realizing that their spouse, whom you have not met before, is like totally your best friend separated from birth.
Enter: Kristin and Brandon.
Brandon and I went to law school together. We were in the same section, so OBVS we're close and have stayed friends. (Just kidding; it doesn't really work that way. Our section was just really cool. But, I digress.) He married Kristin a few years ago in a stunning wedding that Durel and I could not attend because Jack was a baby and we were exhausted and broke.
They recently came to Austin for a few days. It was super duper fun. Super. Duper. Fun.
Here's some of what we experienced.
Suffice it to say, carnivorous, wine-drinking, intelligent, fun friends who you've either known for a decade or feel like you have, well, I like those.
Hope you have some laughs and some brisket today.
