Have you ever met Emily Eliason? If not, you really should. She is one of the kindest, sweetest and most considerate person you'll ever meet. I have been so lucky to call her friend for the past year, and have learned so much from her.
Such as: if you go outside to sunbath creepers will always be there to gawk, there is a way to salvage a waterlogged ipod, the best wontons are in St. Louis, running is the best therapy, you can make a cute sundress out of an old button shirt, sheets are the best costumes..ever..even if the kids don't think so, windex cleans anything, highschool musical is addictive...and I will admit..it rocks, no matter where you go there is always someone with a phone(or email) and drama, a good loaf of bread is excellent on a bad day, and even though Emily makes it look so effortless, running a 6min. mile, making noodles from scratch, making doughnuts, and diy projects are not easy.
Emily, thankyou so much for the friendship you have given me. It is so nice to always have you there, even if it's just talking at the park. I always am so grateful for the support and love you give to me and my family. Thankyou for being such a good role model to me in being a mother, living life without stressing over everything, standing up for yourself, and being a good friend. I am so grateful that we met you guys on our first sunday here and even more grateful that our quirks didn't scare ya'll too much. ;)
I hope you have a Happy Birthday...oh...the babies have a surprise for you...in case you read this before you come back.
