I have been blessed to have an experience that I know many are not able to claim: I have kept the same friends since I was very little. Growing up there was a group of us at church that did everything together: Erin, Stephanie, Diane, Ellen, and me. Erin and I, as I’ve mentioned before, have been friends since before I could walk. In 8th grade or so, Caitlyn joined our group. Years later we’re still friends, even though we live all over the country and have spouses and babies/babies on the way.
This Christmas, the stars aligned and all of us but Ellen were in town on one day. Before that, it hadn’t happened for over 2 years, when all of us came to town for Caitlyn’s wedding. So, the 27th Erin, Stephanie, Diane, and I (plus our friend Elyse, who is preggo too), along with the husbands and baby Chaela, got together to catch up.
Elyse and I are due one day apart!
Steph, Elyse, Me, Erin, Caitlyn, and Diane
