friends don't let friends move without them
It's such a silly thing, but friendships have been very important to me in my adult years (friends were always important through school, obviously, but the friendships I've made since being married are different... deeper, if that makes sense?) I was absolutely terrified to leave my hometown and move to northern Utah. It was the biggest change I'd ever made and it was hard for me to leave the life I knew. But my first Sunday at church, I met a girl named Nicole, and thought nothing more of it. Before I knew it, Nicole and Vinny became our very best friends! We have the kind of friendship that survives eating dessert off of dirty dishes and utensils (because Eric thought I had washed the dishwasher and he didn't realize I hadn't until it was too late), laughing so hard we all almost pee our pants (on multiple occasions, and yes, our kids think we are crazy) and announcing pregnancy in the middle of Victoria's Secret (no it wasn't us, and yes we were all in there together, with our kids! Mia had multiple pairs of underwear around her neck and thought they were the best accessory to walk around the store in!) It was awful moving away from them (and all of the other amazing friendships we made) to our small town a few hours away. Now it just seems plain cruel to be moving to another state. It's totally unfair that we lived by each other for a short time! But at the same time, I know our friendship will be life long and when we do get to spend time together, it will be the BEST!
I guess what I'm getting at is that we have been blessed to make the most incredible friends over the years! My best friend in Washington, Eric's friends from high school that are still very close and all of our other friendships across Utah... we are better people because of those relationships! And now I'm nervous (excited, but super nervous) to start new. I am definitely excited about being closer to the friendships I do have in Arizona, but I just hope and pray that we will be able to meet some amazing people and find friends in our area in no time! Wish me luck, ha ha!
