Do you believe in love at first sight? I do and it happened to me last week. Three beautiful mamas and 3 tiny perfect tots walked through the doors of my in-laws Sea Island house and it happened. The moment my eyes met with Sarah + Tuck's, Chelsea + W's, and Brittany + Maddelena's [these links will lead you to their take on the trip and lots more photos!] an instant bond was made and it was the first time ever that I had friendship love at first sight.
After following each others blogs for a long time, we decided it was time meet in person and I could not have imagined a more perfect couple of days with these amazing women and babies. I do not even think anyone said "Oh, nice to meet you." It was more like "AHHHHHHH, oh my gosh y'all are here." Best friends from growing up? From college? No, not even close. But the way we all interacted it was like we had gone to kindergarden together and were all bridesmaids in each other's weddings. And I am forever going to hold this bond close to my heart because I feel so lucky that I am a part of their lives.
Spending some of our last days down in Sea Island with this bunch was all sorts of fabulousness. Beach time with 4 babies was quite a riot but one of the best parts of our time together was getting lost in our conversations. One night we looked up and it was 1AM! What?! These girls have made my new mama heart complete as I feel like I have already learned so much from them and we now have such a wonderful support group for all things babies. I know that I could call any one of them at 4am with a frantic baby related question and they would be there for me. We all would.
Casey has been asking me why I have been so somber and mopey since I came back and I know it is because I miss these girls. and babies. But I am going to perk up because I know for a fact that we will meet again very soon. It's like pandora's box of friendship has been opened and nothing is going to keep us apart. The hundred's of miles of distant between us will try to hinder us...but it will not matter. I would go around the world 14 times to get to these girls.
So besties, until we meet again....
