A Long Overdue Meeting
Last week my husband, infant son and daughter were a part of a very special meeting, a long overdue official meet and greet with my good friend Katrina!!!
Katrina and I met over 3 years ago on the knot.com planning our weddings, we became friends overnight!
We talk by text and email just about everyday and have been since we met, we've sent packages to one another, helped each other with ideas and planning and even have some of the same recipe books so that we can bake together by phone! Katrina has talked me off the ledge, and has been a shoulder to cry on when I was low. Over these 3 years, Katrina has been very supportive friend throughout my pregnancy, ups and downs with my day to day life, and she was/is there for me dealing with the loss of my grandmother. I call Katrina my modern day pen pal because we had never actually met.
Katrina and I both planned our babies nurseries; shared every detail about their rooms, the color schemes and all sorts of plans about the babies with one another! It was a really good and surreal feeling to be standing in the same place and talking with the person you've known so well for so long - we had a really good time and so did the boys!
I think they are fast friends too -
My daughter Jai (who is a really tall 12 year old) had such a good time with "Miss Katrina" she told me she didn't want to come home. Our families really enjoyed one another which made the visit even more enjoyable for Katrina and I.
Katrina and I (and our husbands and kids in the background lol!) got lots of things done, we managed to decorate together, go to the mall twice, go thrifting and to Target. We even went to dinner and lunch together as a large group! We made the most of our visit and I will be sharing details of those experiences with you all very soon!
I must have thanked my husband 20 times for taking off work and making this visit possible for me. I was so grateful to be visiting with my friend and sharing in her happiness with the first milestone for Avery making one year old! I am a very lucky woman!
