This is the first picture I ever posted on my blog. I thought I would never post a picture on my blog because I just knew my blog was going to be an outlet for my creative writing. *snort* Anywhooo, I posted this picture because this is when I first met IN REAL LIFE some of my messageboard mamas and their kids.
I joined a messageboard for moms of kids born in January 06 when Lydia was about 3 months old. And I don’t think I would have made it through that first year without those women! They gave me friendship and encouragement and love and advice—right there from my little computer screen! And even though I don’t keep up with them on the board now, they are still facebook friends and huge pieces of my heart!
When I moved back to Atlanta, 3 of these ladies lived close by. So, we met up at one of those bounce-house places (even though the kids couldn’t walk!) and chatted the day away. Wendy, who lives about 10 minutes from my old house and I became instant “IRL” friends, too. We get together anywhere from once a week to once a month. It has been so cool to have a friend that is so similar to me–we share a birthday week, have kids the exact same age and both abhor housework. What more could you ask for?
Anyway, today we went back to that same inflatable-game-palooza place and realized it’s been almost 3 years since that first meet-up! When Lydia and Ryan met they were the same age Asa is now! They were just babies!! And now they’re chasing each other up slides, holding hands and talking and laughing together. We couldn’t let the day go by without posing a picture…
How adorable are they? I have tears in my eyes! Love you, Wendy!
