One upon a time, just 7 years ago, we were college roommates... We had a lot in common: love for the Lord, quieter personalities, and enjoyment of the arts, as she studied visual art and I studied theatre and dance. And we were united on what we ultimately wanted to do: we wanted to be wives and mommies.
Those last 7 years passed quickly, as we got married in the same month and had our first baby girls in the same year. I am so grateful for a friendship that has survived the years and the many miles.
The week before Thanksgiving, Mary Khris drove half the day to spend two days at our house. We hadn't seen each other since our girls were under a year old, and it was so much fun to catch up on life as we fit in talking around watching the young ones enjoy each other.
The girls loved reading stories... I finally had to call it quits after 12 books or so, since I had a sore throat and my voice was going to give out!
After rain the first day, the next two were perfect. The girls had fun swinging...
