True story: Beaches used to be my favorite movie and I knew all the words to all the songs and I haven't seen it in years yet I'm getting teary just thinking about it.
We have way too much going on right now. Like, coming and going more than ever in my whole life. Spinning plates. And stuff like that. But today- amidst far too much busy-ness we went to the beach with some friends passing through - like a big deep breath of fresh air it was.
Ivy + Axel
We met up with dear Elizabeth and her whole family. In just a few hours I felt like, um, they could be my kids' godparents? Crazy much? Elizabeth and I already knew we clicked, but to see our kids get along just so, and how Ivy would rather be in her or her husband's arms than mine? It was a confirmation.
All our kids: six boys and one Ivy
Why oh why has no one invented that time machine yet? I would be Elizabeth's neighbor and we would be best friends forever and ever. Maybe we still can be...
Tonight I am so thankful for that big deep breath of beach. And for a life that includes friends that I love so much it hurts.
