A few weekends ago Jay, Kelly, Chris and I finally found time to solidify a date for something we’d been planning over the past year or so. Part of our wedding gift from them was a weekend getaway to Block Island. Despite an impeding forecast of overcast skies and rain, we caught some of the best weather of the season. I’m not sure I could think of a more enjoyable wedding present, or a quick escape with friends. There was good food, tasty drinks on the water, much-needed catching up, and some low-key hiking around the island. Even though we’ve been to Block Island a few times before, we saw new things, found a few new places to eat, and enjoyed it to a whole new level. It was a great reminder of how to put aside work and stress and live in the moment, and reaffirmed how lucky Chris and I are to have friends like these two guys.
