There are very few memories of my childhood that don't involve my friend Kris. I'm trying really hard these days to not call her Krissey. I've known her since I was 3, she lived just 4 doors away from me, went to the same schools, same college, we were in each others weddings, we were pregnant both time together and became moms at the same time. We still talk as often as our busy lives allow. We try to get together for weekend vacations and fun with our kids. She has a son Kyra's age and twin boys Nik's age. The kids love seeing each other!
This past weekend she went above and beyond the friend duties. She took my kids for a play date, dinner and a movie without me. While I would have loved to be visiting with her over a cup of coffee as the kids played, I was in the urgent care with my mom while she got IV's for a leg infection.
So what do you do to tell someone how much the help meant when words alone just don't seem to be enough.
A sneak peak of our new pewter banners. They will be available on our website in the early fall! There are 9 different sayings. I've been keeping these under wraps for the last several months, but finally had to share. Good thing Kris doesn't have time to read my blog with 3 boys home for summer break.
Kris and her husband Evan just bought a beautiful new house and I thought this would look great hanging on her wall to remind her of how lucky and blessed she is. And how blessed I am to have known her for 42 years!
Thanks again Kris for everything!
