you know the saying...
"...to have good friends, you must be a good friend?" well, i've found that regardless of how bad of a friend i can be, i'm still fortunate to have amazing people in my life. first, i lucked out and married my all time best friend (we even have matching b.f.f. jewelry - it's called wedding rings). on top of that, i have more friends than i deserve that have supported, loved and cared for me, no matter how good of a friend I am to them. isn't that rare?
over the weekend, one of my best friends (and a good friend of doug's too) jeanette, stopped by our house on her way back home to canada for a visit and to introduce her new husband jordan to us. we had the best time catching up, giving them a mini-tour of our town, stopping by the magical thrift store, eating good food and of course, reminiscing just a tiny bit about the "old days." even though we don't get to see each other often, and i'm terrible at keeping in touch, it was great to spend time with someone who makes you feel like none has passed at all.
as our little family stood waving goodbye to them from our front porch as they drove away, i couldn't help but get a little choked up, knowing how lucky i am.
