My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Connecting. Retinitis Pigmentosa

We just said goodbye to some dear friends. I just love an evening of connecting and realizing what a small world it is. Certainly a joyful aspect of Wasatch Woman is the connections and new people that I have met. I realized that someone that has become a friend because of this experience knew a dear friend of ours ... infact they used to be neighbors!  They hadn't seen each other for several years!! So, tonight we invited both couples over to reconnect! So much fun.
(I am loving this outfit that was part of my last little shopping adventure at the Park City Outlets.)  We started with two of my favorite appetizers ... our Slush Recipe and Steve's Salsa (I renamed it because he does all the work in chopping all the ingredients!)
My other very nice helper, Cricket.  She is the greeter as the guests arrive. 
Happy Weekend.  A three-day weekend here in Utah with a 10K scheduled to run on Monday!

Another fun connecting story.  As we were at the Hale Centre Theatre Play on Monday, the lady in front of us turned around and asked where I worked ... to make a long story short - it turns out that I had helped her son many years ago when I worked at the Moran Eye Center.  I loved that she remembered, and it was super fun to get an update on her son.
