FINALLY! After fifteen (plus) years, Miriam (my very best bff) and I are once again living in the same state! While it is a big state, and she is at one end and I am at the other, it is still THE SAME STATE! The all caps probably give away my excitement, but they in no way illustrate just how elated I am about this. The boys and I hopped on a plane for our first visit and it was, in every way, perfect. Miriam was about to pop with baby #3 so we did no exploring, no touring, no busy-busy-busy...we pretty much remained in our p.j.s and watched our children play together. Perfect.
