Bumping Into People

I always love running into people I haven't seen in years, particularly people I went to high school with. It's always interesting to catch up with them, find out what kind of career that person may have now, where they live, how many kids they have, and all that.

I ran into a guy today that I know from way back. We didn't go to school together, but we were friends when we were kids. I did, however, find out his wife is someone I was really close to in high school. I haven't seen either one of them in at least 10 years, so we ended up sitting for awhile inside a store chatting while we waited for the rain to die down some. Turns out they moved to Arizona right after they got married, and they've been there since.

He does something with software, maybe software development, but she is a SAHM who is setting up her own crafter's store online. As soon as she mentioned that she makes candles, incense, and tons of other stuff I had to give her my email address. I told her to hit me up as soon as she gets the store online because I'll most likely be her first customer.

I felt like it was kind of meant for me to run into them today especially after yesterday I found out one of my very favorite online candle retailers is shutting down.
