Friends to Last a Lifetime

Okay, so I have kind of a gushy post for everyone right now.. I’ve said before how I have the workd’s best friends ever and that will never change. Last year, my best girlfriends sent me a care package in Paris from the States to cure my homesickness and tell me how much they missed and loved me. It was absolutely wonderful and uplifting and I couldn’t believe they did something like that for little ole’ me. They’re truly the best.

And now anyone who knows me, knows that I love my birthday. Like love love love it. I typically tend to celebrate my birthday for at least half of October with my various groups of loved ones in my life.. Yes, I’m that girl. It’s not like I shove it in people’s faces, I just love my birthday and love spending it with the people I care about. And this year was wonderful hanging out with my family all weekend – especially with being away from them for it last year while in Paris.

So, remember how I said I have the best of friends? Well, they’re from all around the world and my best friends from Paris just sent me birthday presents from abroad!


Seriously, I love these girls so much.. I’m so shocked that they thought to do something like this for me and I couldn’t be happier that God blessed my life with such beautiful souls.

When I say I have the world’s best friends, I truly mean it. 


Getting attached

Alright. So I’ve been here for about two weeks now and I’m starting to get really attached to my kiddos. I love their good morning hugs when I come walking into the flat and our good night cuddles before I leave for the day too. And right now they’re both in school and I’m just waiting until I can see them again.

A is crazy and I adore him. Yesterday we had multiple lightsaber fights and it was like the best thing in the world. Oh, and he discovered that I’m ticklish, so that’s not a good thing at all. Like at all. He thinks it’s the best thing in the world to run around a corner and scare the life out of me and then attack me with tickles. But I gotta admit it’s like the cutest thing in the world too.

Ok so that’s it. I’m in love with my kiddos already. I can’t even imagine what it’ll be like to leave them next summer. So it’s a good thing that I don’t even have to think about that right now.
