We're doing it. Together.

I adore this picture and, more importantly, these people.

Katie and I have been friends for more than 21 years. One of the greatest blessing has been to be moms together {even though we live four hours apart} and watch our kids befriend each other. Cate is 16 months older than Charley, who is 14 months older than Ben, who is 9 months older than Simon.

Hanging out with Katie now is certainly different than when I was 14 and she was 13, but I wouldn't trade the chaos and noise for anything. We used to sit on her front porch and wonder when we'd be old enough to drive and do something with our lives outside Mockingbird Valley subdivision in quiet Buckner, Ky.

Well, friend, we're doing it. It's hard sometimes. But it's often funny and usually sweet.

Yes, this is slightly awkward, Linkbut they sure are sweet together.

A little quiet time. With Diego.

The conversation went like this:
Charley: "Cake!"
Ben: "Cake!"
Charley: "Strawberries!"

I'm blessed to have had most of two days this past week to hole up with Katie in a bubble we made for ourselves, soaking in new memories to add to our collection and watching our kids be kids. Together.
