Kristie and I met in kindergarten but didn't become best pals until we were 10 years old. We've been through so much together...training bras, Judy Blume, high school heartbreak, family loss, new beginnings, marriage, infertility, woes, adoption, and on and on. If any friend is like a sister to me, it's her. She IS my sister. She knows my story. She knows my entire family. She knows that certain scent of my childhood home. How many people in our lifetime can share such a bond? Not many...
Kate is her dear 6 year old daughter. She and Bea are the same age and are lucky that they are getting to grow up together. It's so fun to share stories of our childhood with them. Again, not many friends are connected in this way.
I got to play with Kristie and Kate in the wildflowers deep in the heart of central Texas hill country. It was a splendid evening. The scenery was immaculate and picturesque. I was with two of my favorite people. The only sounds to hear were that of bees gathering pollen and nectar, crickets, frogs, and birds. A big slice of heaven right there!
What a fun, fun, inspiring, exhilarating evening. Oh my...nothing feels my cup up more than chasing wildflowers and taking photos of beautiful people.
