Serendipity Sundays ~ A Few Whitefish Montana Memories

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

I loved our time in Whitefish Montana. Our condo sat right on the bank of Whitefish River. It flowed into Whitefish Lake a stone’s throw away. You can see my son and grandson loved paddle boarding when we weren’t fishing, hiking or enjoying the food!

Reconnecting with a dear friend was at the top of our list and one of the reasons we traveled to Montana.

Vicki and I have been BFF’s forever! Even with each of us having some difficult chapters in our lives and living a great distance from each other, when we are together it’s like we just pick up where we left off, like no time has passed!

Vicki was a big part of my daughter and son’s life growing up so we all enjoyed reconnecting. Vicki was able to meet Handsome Hudson and Beautiful Beckett and begin forming a bond. Love you Vicki

HI Dorie,

what a wonderful connection you have with Vicki.  There is nothing more important than true friendship.  I am so glad you were able to get out to Montana to see Vicki and have some quality time with her and your family.

Dorie, even though you may live far apart, BFFs don't ever forget the bond you have.  Glad you and your family had such a great time in Whitefish.

Paddle-boarding on the river looks very refreshing on a hot day like this!  Nice to have life long friends you can reconnect with.

Dorie my wife would very much identify with the relationship you have with Vicki.  Her best friend for over 50 years lives in California, and we live in Connecticut.  Yet the remain best friends and still stay in touch as much as possible.

Good morning, Dorie... nothing quite like an "old" friend. Sadly, I find myself losing more of them each year. Wonderful that you got the time to reconnect in person. I still wish that I'd had the chance to do so with a number of my oldest friends who've passed on. But I was fortunate to do so twice in the past couple of months with friends I hadn't seen at least 15 years... so it's not all sad.

Having the type of friend that is always there even when they are far is dear. I had 2 like that and they are both gone.

I had to look at that top photo twice.  It looks so similar to scenes along the American River near my home.
