Seven years have passed since I studied abroad in Shanghai and met some amazing people from around the country. Some of whom I still call my true friends. Jean lives in Chicago and has always held down the East Coast while I’ve stayed over here in Seattle, but we make the most of our reunions when it’s like no time has passed at all. We laugh like crazy people over scenarios that you wouldn’t really understand because we are basically actually totally crazy. Our latest catch up was over brunch at Local 360. The cozy nooks and thick wooden booths were perfect for absorbing the sound of our giggles and guffaws.
