we've come a long way, Em!

That's my friend Emily. Yes, and that is me. This picture was taken almost 15 years ago. OUCH! And yes, we were that corny that we got our pictures taken together, at a studio (KMart!) in matching shirts. Why you ask? Well, we were friends of course! And, everyone in HS thought we were sisters. In fact, oddly enough, some people thought we were twins. That I don't get. OMGosh, I just realized we are both wearing small lockets in this picture too. Did we plan that?

I had the great privelege of meeting up with a good that I haven't actually seen since before Hudson. She had met my Chris, but she married her Chris while we still lived in AZ, and we were unable to make the trip to be at the wedding. And since then, we've each added 2 beautiful babies to our families - she has Samantha and Jake (she's a little crazier than we are; hers are both under 18 months!) and we have...well, obviously.

Mr. Chris playing with the bambinos in the sand - what a good daddy. Must be in the name! It was such a fantastic treat to get to be with Emily. We've been so blessed to keep in touch over the years, and it felt great to just have easy conversation and enjoy watching our kids together.
We've come a long way, Em!
