mini versions of us

October 2, 2021

I had a few close friends over today and had an amazing Saturday. It was one of those times when you’re just coming over for breakfast but everyone stayed till evening. We honestly did nothing except talk, laugh, and eat, but it really felt like everything.

I had a moment looking at all the kids playing together. Alia brought Yusuf and Kim brought her girls. Toys were everywhere, noisy TV blasting out the Paw Patrol movie, and the kids were running around everywhere, yet I couldn’t help but smile.

It’s so surreal that years ago when we all met, these kids never even existed. And now it’s the next generation of “us”, and they’re all playing together. Literally mini versions of us in my living room reminding us how far we’ve come in our friendship.

Emma & Sarah

Can’t stop smiling at this photo of Kim’s daughter Emma and my little Sarah. No idea what the conversation was, but they were basically checking out boys swimming in the baby pool.

Who knows if all these kids will still be tight when they grow up, but if they choose to be the best of friends, I hope they’ll have a bond as beautiful as the ones I have with their moms.
