Two by Two

Tonight, J and I hung out with our pals Mark and Katie.
"Our last supper" as Katie said... with a smile.
Because she is due to have a beautiful baby girl in just nine days.
And then it will be: John, Jordy, Mark, Katie, and Elle.

As we shared a meal together,
J commented on our journey as friends over the last three years.

M and K were our first friends we made since getting married three and a half years ago.
We met at church, K and I through a summer ladies' study.
We went through nursing school together.
Took a few Palm Springs trips together.
Many a night of Catan playing while listening to one of Mark's music mix CDs.
Meeting their pomeranian Frankie... getting Emma, and then Baker.
Moving. Changing churches. Graduating. 
Losing jobs. Searching for jobs. Getting jobs.
Sharing life together.

And now, they are about to welcome baby Elle into their family.
And then move to Oregon.
Fortunately, we get to visit them this November :)

It's such a blessing to be able to journey through life alongside friends.

M and K, thank you for being our first married friends.
Your encouragement and love for each other and for the Lord is inspiring and challenging.
We are so excited to meet your sweet Elle in just a few days.
You are going to be incredible parents.
She's a blessed little girl.

And we can't wait to see you in your new home... as sad as we are it won't be San Diego... 
maybe we will join you one of these years :)

"Friends come and friends go, but a true friend sticks by you like family."
Proverbs 18:24 (the Message)
