Julia

Mamas & their babies

Where can I start with Julia?

Let’s start with the fact that we were best friends in high school. (even though we went to rival schools)

We met in sophomore year and we became inseparable.

We would have sleep overs at her house, her parents were my parents, my parents were hers, we wore each others clothes, we watched each other fall in and out of love, have many hair colors and hair styles, had crushes on our college Art teacher and stared at his butt, you know… we did everything best girl friends do.

Then a falling out happened.

It happens….

Then, last year through a friend’s profile on Facebook, I saw a smile I would never not recognize.

Julia!! (she had gotten married so she had a different last name)

I was nervous, do I send her a message?

Do I not?

So many years (over a decade) had passed….

I wrote her.

Only to have the warmest reply and find out that she too had been broken hearted all these years and wondered what I was up to as much as I did her.

Julia is happily married, has 2 super cute boys and has been living in Oregon for quite some time. (she’s a crafty mom too. check out her handmade goodies here)

She looks the same as the last time I saw her and I cannot wait to see her soon. (a reunion is in the works)
