weekend review

Mia and I spent a short (too short) weekend up north and it was just what I needed! Of course it would have been better with Eric, but since he had to work I spent my time the next best possible way, with my best friend! We stayed up late (like the first time I've stayed up late since having a baby, and not because of my baby, ha ha!) talking, shopped and just enjoyed hanging out, watching our kids play and not having to rush off to do some adult responsibility :) It's been almost 3 years since we've had a day like that. Like I said, it was just what I needed!
I was also able to see a couple more of my close friends, do hair.... and finally meet Courtney!! We followed each others blogs for (at least) a couple years and of course we stalked instagram. She sent me the sweetest gift after I had Mia and saved my sanity with her advice and encouraging emails those rough weeks of nursing! I don't know what else to say except that we were meant to be friends! I was so excited to finally meet her and she did not disappoint! It feels like we've known each other forever and I know we will continue to be friends for a long, long time! The sweetest part was watching our babes play together. They were SO cute! Mia was in heaven and followed Ryder around like a little puppy dog :) She's as smitten with this new (real life) friendship as I am!


I've said it before and I'll continue to say it until I'm blue in the face... I LOVE blogging (and all forms of social media, ha!) and the people it has brought into my life! I feel so blessed to be surrounded by the BEST of friends! Oh and northern Utah, you still have my heart! And I miss all of my friends (and the convenience of meeting friends) like crazy. I hope to call you home again, someday! (Hasn't someone suggested bloggers just move to an island together? I'm sort of liking that idea lately :) ha!)

Blogging totally brings out the best aspects of friendship and magnifies them! It's one of the best parts about the entire blogging/social media world.

It's so great to be friends with the people you live by. They come from different walks of life and teach me about different ways of life.

BUT! Being friends with other bloggers, I usually find others just like me. And that is awesome in another way. People that have kids the same ages as my kids, that are going through the same things I'm going through. I'm grateful for both.
