true blue friends.

Last week Tim and I got to spend time with some of our very best friends that moved away to South Carolina a year ago.  We miss them so much!  But we know they are exactly where they are suppose to be and God is working through them in amazing ways.  Brian is a youth pastor at a church there.  Brian and Jade together do such an amazing job with the teenagers!  It was so much fun just getting to talk for hours and catch up on everything.

They stayed the night at our house one evening.  We were up until 3am talking! Well…..I dozed off a few times! Haha!  That is waaaaay past my bedtime.  But it was worth it.  It felt like nothing had changed……and we all just picked up where we left off!  Isn’t that how great friendships are?  It is special.

We had planned on getting up and making a huge breakfast together…..but the 3am thing kinda messed us up! :)  We all slept until about 10 and then we decided to go to Ihop! ha!

Jade tried this sour apple lemonade!  It looked pretty in the glass. 

We had such a wonderful time together.  Even though we miss them, we know we are all right where we are suppose to be. 

It’s so nice to have friends near and far!  What a blessing.

Happy Thursday! 

(oh and guess what?  this is actually my friday!!!!! weeeee!)
