Really fun! I love Lisa!

Also, I remember learning to knit at your house...I wish I could rewind the time and spend it there again. What a sweet time!! (maybe even twice?) And you bought a Beth Moore ticket for me...I'm still thankful. I feel it well-ing up right this second!

Love you, friend!! Enjoy the time!!!

This topic is very close to my heart.. it is something that has been hitting me so much lately. I am so thankful that I could meet so many new sisters on the AWI Marriage One chat and connecting on FB.
I so wish I lived closer so I could come to your Coffee Wednesday on May 26...
I will be there in spirit:)

Can't wait to read more about your connecting friendships -- wish I was closer to attend coffee. Maybe it's time that I start something like that. Completely envious that you met Lisa and I love that your girls are watching The Facts of Life... one of my favorites!

So true and so hard especially when you make the transition from single to married. Then add on top of that you and your husband attend the church that you have been attending and developed friends in for years prior. Trying to connect is one of the hardest things we have had to do together. Once we had kids it was a bit easier since you now have something in common with some of the other married couples, something that is easy to find out and not have to "work" at it.


Wow- I wish i lived closer to you. I have some close friends that I have had for years but long for more- especially Christian ones! If you ever do this in CO- I will be there. Blessings to you and your family.

You are so right-connecting is so important and essential. SO important.
