I love being a mom to boys, and I love being a mom to girls .... the best of both worlds! Over the past few months, I've had the blessing of being able to do some girls' dates (a few lunches and even Lydia and my overnight getaway at Robyn's).
Today, the boys had a boys' day ice fishing with friends ... while it was a "mild" day with a bit of sunshine and temps in the 20's, no thanks ... more and more I'm getting "annoyed" with winter, and I'm ready for it to be done! Unfortunately, we likely have a few months of winter still ahead.
Anyhow, the girls' and I took a little drive to meet Elizabeth for lunch. You may remember Elizabeth, a college roommate, who did her 10th consecutive Breast Cancer 3Day (60 mile) walk this past summer. AMAZING. And, she is the friend that coordinated the Stella & Dot fundraising show for me when we were praying Nora home. Love. this. girl!
Elizabeth brought her sister Emily, who I also adore. And, I love the sister relationship these two share. I pray that Lydia and Nora share a similar relationship as they do life together.
Thankful for the blessings of friendships and girls' dates to catch up! And, I know, aren't we cute in our unplanned matchy-ness?!?!
