we've been planning since winter, long before there grew a babe in my or megan's tum, but i think maybe i knew even then, nestled somewhere deep in the river of my soul, i'd truly need this come october. year in and year out, i return from these days spent with my oldest friends feeling uplifted and renewed and so very known. there was something in this weekend especially, something about this particular season we are living in, that filled me right up. between the three of us, we've got five babes under four and two on the way, and walking through these days together, with nothing but time to talk and share and advise and laugh, fed me well, as a woman, as a wife, as a mama.
cheers to five years of meeting in the middle, sweet friends!
