This is where it just gets plain weird. We hadn't talked in a few years. Couldn't remember why we fought but had both lost touch. I moved to SC, we both went off to college still not speaking. Out of the blue she called my number from NY. It gave her our new number in SC (just days before the service cut off). We reconnected and found out that she now lived in GA! We were only a few hours from each other!
Since then we have slipped right back into the friendship we had as teenagers. The laughing, the tears, the heartaches and miracles. We have stood up in each others weddings and watched our children grow up together. We get together as often as we can and every once in awhile a giggle fit will still erupt.
Aiden is her oldest and was Natalie's first real friend. She has always loved him (and him her) and they tolerate each other in ways that they don't tolerate other people. They play together and sit together and generally just migrate towards each other like little magnets. I am prepared for that to possibly change as they grow up but for right now I just love it and like to think that they will always be besties at heart.
We have photos like this all the way back to when they were teeny. We don't pose them or put them together (notice their toes)....our littlest besties.
Last weekend Aiden told everyone that he was going to go visit Natalie and Alyssa much to Kristi's surprise since she knew nothing of this visit. HA! So she called, we made plans and the rest is Sunday afternoon history.
Don't you just want to suck his cheeks off?
Watering the dirt? Of all the places the yard needs water and she picks the one spot with nothing there. hee hee
It is fun to see our kiddles growing up together after spending our young lives learning how to be people ourselves. What better way to spend a weekend than with generations of good friends. <3
