Wordless{ish} Wednesday: Preggo Pals


{My sweet, kind and loving mother arranged for my oldest and dearest friend, Aubree', to fly down to El Paso for a few days so that we could spend some quality time together before our respective spawn are due later this summer.  We're only a few weeks apart (she's winning) so we spent a good deal of time comparing our various symptoms and the realities of dealing with babies.  It also helped to have a walking, talking example of things to come in the house, too.}


{We've been friends since junior high and it's kind of amazing to have known someone for that long and to have remained such good friends regardless of the many changes our lives have undergone over the years--we're actually closing in on having known each other for two decades.  DECADES, people.}


{It sucks that we live so far apart, but our friendship is the kind that doesn't require close distance or even frequent contact to thrive.  We could probably go for a year without talking and get together and it would feel as though things never skipped a beat--although I would never want to abstain from Aubree' for that long.  Hopefully we'll be able get together over Thanksgiving if the stars can align for us to both be in Pennsylvania with our families at the same time.  Fingers crossed!}

I love the pics and I adore that you ladies are still the best of friends. My bff and I have been that way since 7th grade, no matter how many miles separate us. There are no words to describe that kind of connection.

BTW - you two look awesome!

Aubree' said...

Um, super awesome trip, so glad you're my bestie. I had such a blast and have such respect and admiration for you and who you've become. Fingers crossed for Thanksgiving!

You both look gorgeous!!

I love hearing about friendships like this. My best friend and I have been besties since we were 2, and then we've been besties with two other girls since kindergarten. I know exactly what you mean about being away for a while and being able to pick right up, but still never letting it be that long in between anyway. :)

Congratulations on your upcoming new addition!

Friendships like yours are very special.

You both look AMAZING. Congrats to you both♥

You two look amazing. I had lost contact with one of my old friends- when we finally were back in touch we realized that her first born & my second were born on the exact same day- we were expecting at the same time & missed all that bonding through the process.
