bosom buddy

Have you ever met someone who you instantly liked? and who then married your brother? and who then spent holidays and important occasions with you? and who then had adorable babies I call nephew and niece? and who then was a delight to spend time with in any occasion? and who then loved and kissed on your new lovey dovey baby?

Have you ever wanted to be like someone who was lovely, unique, kind, fun and delightful?

Well I have.

I call her my sister (in law if you want to get specific)
I call her my friend
I call her Mrs. B (or Ashley...what ev)

Ash inspires me. She is such a good mom, and wife. She has a lovely home and she is so creative. Spending a week in her home was a blessing I needed. I left refreshed and joyful.

Yep. She's super-cool! But you forgot one thing ... "effortless puts together baby showers while out of town. Simultaneously watches a toddler, makes the food, decorates for the party and STILL manages to look cute when the guests arrive." Seriously. In awe. How did she do that? All I did at that very same time was have an allergic reaction to my lip gloss!

Aw, Jamie...I don't know whether to laugh or cry. That is the sweetest ever. Really. Words of Affirmation; completely "my" thing.
You don't even know the countless times you've inspired me with your godly, calm outlook on life.
I was talking to someone the other day that knows you (at MY chuch! I have to tell you about this...) and I was like, "Jamie is one of my very best friends...wait! She's my sister in law too!" It was great.

And I'm cracking up at Kristin. The reaction to the lipgloss. PRICELESS!! That was a super fun weekend.

(just what I needed today, BTW)
