You Can Go Home Again
I got to have lunch with the most special person! This is Del. She was my neighbor from the time I was 3 until I was 14! Del actually used to babysit me when I was little and I still remember the hamburgers she made me for lunch. Del worked at Mary's Restaurant on 7th ave and was married to Joe ~ chef extraordinaire, who also worked at Mary's.
Anyway.. I digress... It was so amazing to be with Del again. It really felt like I was home in my heart. I could have stayed and talked to her for hours and hours.
Del has 5 kids ~ I honestly don't ever remember her when she wasn't either pregnant or just had a baby. Her house was so much fun to be at ~ but crazy! I did get to see one of her daughters while I was there. Del lives with Mary Jo (who still has the biggest dimples ever!) and Mary Jo's husband ~ both of them are real sweeties!
Anyway... It was so great to see her again and I have to say, I felt like I had traveled back in time, to my youth and got to spend time with someone who means so much to me... and I can't wait to do it again.
