We've been so blissfully busy lately with the visit of our friends, the Thompsons. Andrew and Jen and their 4 year old daughter Molly, were like family to us. They still are, but now they're like family who up and moved home to North Dakota. The nerve of some people, right?
We hadn't seen Molly in two years, and likewise they hadn't seen B since he was about 6 months old. But being all together again was like no time had passed. Andrew and Jen have the uncanny ability to lighten us brooding Brewers up. Zion laughed more in the last few days than he has in months, and I was so happy to be back in the presence of my relaxed and graceful first ever mom-friend. Plus, Beckett fell for Molly like she was his long lost big sister. It's been amazing. Now that the visit is over, and despite our exhaustion from all the excitement, the quiet and solitude of being home is starting to creep and take on a somber life of its own. We've missed our friends so much over these past years. Having to say goodbye again has made that missing acute once more. My heart is so full of love for this little girl and her parents. It's wonderful to have this kind of friendship, I'm so thankful for it, and for this visit. But seriously, you guys, do you have to live soooo far away?
