We get lots of visitors in Wilmington, which means we get to spend a lot of time with good friends (especially in the Summer). Amie spent quite a few years living here herself. She's a beach girl and still has many friends in town. She recently came up for a weekend visit with me and I was so excited! I love when I get the opportunity to have one on one time with my girls!
Take a few steps backwards and you'll get to the picture up above. Amie & I officially met in kindergarten. It's a shame that we didn't remember each other, but we do have a yearbook to prove it and the two pictures above! Later in life I started attending my best friend Amy's youth group. This is where Amie (IE) & I reunited and a true friendship began. I was lucky because I spent time in public school with Amie for a year and than we had many Church adventures to grow on! She became one of my closet girlfriends and since then I still consider Amie one of my closet friends. We may be separated by a few hours, but I always know that she'll be there for me when I need her. It's always good to have those long term friendships that continue to grow over many, many years!
Here's a few more flashback pictures of Amie & I :
This was always one of my favorite pictures of the two of us.

Flashback forward to a few weeks ago! A brief summary of our hang out weekend went like this: Friday dinner at Flaming Amy's ( a local burrito restaurant in town), hang out time on the couch, Saturday lunch at Our Crepes & More with Christina, beach day, movie night, and we said our goodbyes on Sunday morning. The best part about it all is that we just got to talk and catch up. Those times are very meaningful to me with my friends.
I didn't take a lot of pictures on Amie's last visit, but I captured a few:
Our Crepes & More is a place I've been really wanting to try out and it was amazing! Pretty much everything they make is all homemade! If you're in Wilmington, NC this is a place to try!
Christina got this yummy looking sandwich.
Amie & I both tried the spinach & feta crepe
We couldn't pass up desserts! Christina tried their raspberry and lemon sorbet.
Amie & I shared this ooey gooey goodness of chocolate, powdered sugar, banana's, whip cream and dessert crepe.
My friend, Christina, was down in Wilmington for some photo sessions. I was glad she was able to join us for lunch that day!
After leaving Our Crepes & More Amie and I ventured to the beach. We spent a few hours on the beach until the crazy blowing sand drove us away!
Sunday Amie went back to the beach & I headed to Rocky Mount to prepare for the lake trip. I think we both will be looking forward to our next hang out time together. I sure hope it's in the near future!
