my dear sweet friend amanda came to visit from chicago at the beginning of october and we were SO excited to have her. she had to come for work and extended her trip so that she could see us for a few days. it was such a breath of fresh air to have her here. it just felt right. we used to live across the street from each other and were inseparable for 10 years! now we live so far away that we see each other every few years, but each time we reunite we picked up right where we left off.
i love her SO much and i am so blessed to have her in my life. i dropped her off at the airport, hugged her, started to walk away, then hugged her again just before tears filled my eyes. it's so hard to say goodbye to someone we love so much. but thankfully, she always makes her way back to california every so often for a wonderful reunion. and this time she got to meet rockwell & he loved her, just like i knew he would!
thanks for being so wonderful amanda, we miss you like crazy!
