a much needed visit

2 posts in 1 week- WATCHOUT.

If you would have told me 3 years ago that I would find some of my greatest friends online, through a blog about infertility, I wouldn't have believed you.  But here I am, with some pretty amazing women woven into my life supporting and listening, encouraging and sharing.

Kelly is one of those friends that I have leaned on in the past couple of years and I got to meet her (and her beautiful family) this weekend.  She wrote about our visit here.

If you don't read Kelly's blog, you should.  If you do read her blog, then you really do know Kelly- because that's how she is in real life; sassy, funny, and telling it like it is (in a southern accent). 

I can't even describe how great it was to sit face to face and talk to her, so I won't even try.  I will tell you that we laughed (a lot), cried (a little) and everything in-between. 

We watched our toddlers, who were born just weeks apart, play together.

She cuddled Gavin and gave me pep talks (she's a good pep-talker). 

And there were cocktails, of course there were cocktails. 

I felt like I was with someone I had known my whole life. We know each other's stories and we can relate to so much of what is going on in each other's lives.  And now I've decided that Kelly has to move to PA.

Thank you Kelly, for everything.  Your little family is the best.
