For many years my Bostonian, Nikki, has been telling me to watch the movie Beaches because it reminded her of us. I never watched it until a few weeks ago. It was our nighttime movie right before bed and had I known I would be sobbing like a mess I wouldnt have watched it before bed. Who needs to wake up to swollen eyes and a stuffy nose while on vacation? Oh, but it happened.. I watched the movie and though Nikki fell asleep 30 minutes into it I was hugging her and had finally realized what all her references were about..it only took 7 years..
