It's just tradition!!There are just some people that are friends for life. You know, the kinds of friends that you can go months with out seeing at all and then pick back up where you left off.... I have been friends with Tope since we were barely potty trained and our friendship is still going strong. We only see eachother 2-3 times a year because she doesn't live here but we make it a point to always get together when we can. Where do we go? Well, Starbucks or IHOP of course! Always one of those places. It's just what we do!!
She's in town this week and we were able to once again get together and catch up on eachothers' lives. It doesn't matter that I am living the life as a married mommy of two boys and she is living the life of a Law student (because she's a genius of course!). To others it might look like we have not much in common but she's just one of those friends that I'm not willing to give up :) I tell her about my crazy life raising two boys and she tells me about her (even crazier) life of getting through Law school. It just works!! Here are some pictures that we've taken through the years - starting with the first time she met my 4 year old, Aidan. I have some pictures from way before that but lets just say it would be embarrasing for both of us if I posted those (mostly for me though... lol)...
Get ready for a photo bomb!!!
