Did that sweet little cherub face get your attention? Yup. Mine too.
Meet Courtney, a lifelong friend. Now I know many of you have these sweeties in your life too, because you've blogged about them. Now it's my turn. But, can you even take your eyes off that sweet little baby? I know, I couldn't either. I think when we have our own babies we *know* they're cute, but sometimes we're so darn tired that it's hard to really grasp. Well, I sleep through the night now, and I can appreciate a cute baby in all his glory.
Meet baby Jackson.
Courtney lives in a place far far away. We don't get very many visits anymore. Not without the aid of a large jet, many suitcases, rental cars, and many months of advance preparation. So when I found out she was visiting her in-laws in a town not so far far away, I was thrilled.
We realized that we had been friends for 19 years. No way are we that old! How can I even be old enough to be able to say, friends for 20 years.
As a consolation prize, the waiter carded us. See, he didn't even think we were 21, so how could I have a friend from Junior High for nearly 20 years?
Thanks Court, for being a great friend through these fine years. We had fun sleepovers, and we had fun being rejects at the Catholic School for a year, and we had fun road-trips together. But the best part is playing with each other' kids'. We've come a long way baby! Let's see what the next 20 years brings (gulp).
