Well, Sammi and I had that kind of chemistry.
As a bonus, she's family!
Sammi is my Dad's first cousin on his father's side.
I met her once when I was Brendell's age,
but she's lived far away ever since.
She now lives in Gig Harbor, Wa
which is about 2 hours from where we live.
My Dad was so excited for us to meet
and hooked us up through e-mail a few months ago.
We met for lunch in downtown Seattle yesterday
and had the most wonderful time.
We talked for 2 and a half hours
about life, kids, memories, exchange students,
photography, church, school
and different places we each have lived.
she let the waiter know
and he brought out a little surprise for Bren.
She loved it!
