Sean was dating Emily.
Durel, Sean, Emily, and I all worked at the same restaurant.
Emily and I became friends.
Durel and I became flirtypants.
Two weddings and three children later, we're still friends.
Sean and Emily just started Tipping T, an intimate event venue, family reunion spot, vacation rental, or where I like to gather with the girls and drink lots of wine. It's awesome.
Earlier this summer, Durel, Jack, and I went to check it out. Jack quickly abandoned us to hang out with Connor and Cal. We expected this. They ran around, got dirty, played with stuff, stopped long enough to eat (just), ran around more, watched a show, got dirtier, and then got bundled up into a serious tickle fest and monkey pile with Durel.
It was one of those summer moments where everything is just right.
Hope you have one of those moments today.
