The next generation

I have a very special friend in my life. A friend who knows me as well as family. A friend I met in preschool. Our mothers tell us that we pranced out of our church preschool that first week, hand-in-hand, and announced our friendship. We were going to be "best friends forever!".

Thirty years later, we're still friends. Our friendship survived despite living in different states since the 4th grade. We even lived happily together in Atlanta for about a year after college. We have been bridesmaids in each other's weddings and sent baby gifts to each other's first-born children.

The first day of our sunny Florida vacation was spent with my dear friend, her husband, and her sweet 1-year old daughter. We met for lunch, visited the beach, and watched our girls play together.

It was such a surreal feeling to see our little girls play together. Amelia is about the age Christine and I were when we first met. To think that the next generation is already here... amazing. And to see them playing together? So incredible.

These girls have distance between them from the start, but I would love to see them develop a friendship. Hopefully, a friendship that can effortlessly span a lifetime.
