Over July 4th weekend I got to reunite with an old best friend I hadn’t seen since I was 13 years old. She and I used to meet at the corner where the big tree was in between both our houses when we were little to play. We’d sell lemonade, have mini garage sales on the lawn, play tether ball, four square, go to the beach, swim, and play piano together. You name it, we did it together like we were attached at the hip.
When her Dad’s job was transferred and she moved to Colorado, I thought it was a world away and things would never be the same. But all these years later, we’re still going strong!
Only now we share our lives as Mamas to our own daughters who are exactly six months apart and who look like they could be related. They both have the same bubbly, loud personalities (and many of the same food allergies).
I couldn’t be more thrilled to have such a special friend in my life and am tickled that not only did we get to finally see each other after so long, but that our hubbies and daughters got along like forever friends too!
