These are our best friends. For me, they taught me what Christian fellowship looks like. They taught me about real friendship and accountability and support. About laughing really hard in a cramped dorm room in the middle of the night. And about pokey stix.
So you can imagine that when I was secretly pregnant at 8 weeks and Meredith emailed us all a surprise picture of her ultrasound, there was some squealing. I called her and asked when she was due, and then responded with "Well, I'm due in October." Again - squealing.
These friends of ours, they're precious. And when they offered to throw us a shower, I looked forward to it for weeks because I knew it meant an afternoon with them. And I love them.
And it was perfect.
