I don’t even know how to write this blog post without crying! Lisa and I have been friends for approximately a million years. Or I guess more like 15, but it feels about the same. Her friendship has been one of my most steadfast and sacred through all of these year – from youth group trips, prom nights, endless notes passed between classes, inside jokes that I can still remember, and driving me to school so I didn’t have to ride the bus to staying close through college years, standing beside each other on wedding days, losing people we loved, late night house projects, endless hours of card games, traditional double dates at BJs and trips across the country (all with our husbands, who love each other)… it’s safe to say our friendship has stood the test of time (and teenage years). And now here I am, standing in a hospital room and meeting her baby girl just hours after she was born. I think my heart might explode! Life is crazy, you guys. I love this little one and her parents so, so much. I’m so thankful for them and I can’t wait to see what adventures make our friendship list over these next 15 years! Welcome to the world, tiny, precious Miss Brooklyn!
