There are the kind of friends who see you through anything. You know the kind, they still love you no matter what you've done or haven't done. The kind of friends who know you are a pack rat and come over to help clean out my room with heavy duty trash bags in hand. (Yes, this really happened) They stand by you on your wedding day, hold your hand during bad break ups, buy the champagne when life calls for celebration. Lauren and I once had a fight over whether we were first cousins or best friends. Well, in our case, we are both.
This is her beautiful son, Trey, who just turned six. Lauren, Wayne and their two kids came over last night to brake our newly painted house. Buie grilled burgers. Trey played hard like a six year old does.
Baby Elle was the perfect guest. Isn't she beautiful?
The burgers were perfect, babe.
Trey left us a chalk drawing that I will be enjoying for days to come.
Hopefully it all washed off okay. ;)
Even the dogs had a splendid evening.
Enjoy life now.
