This weekend, several of our very close friends came up to spend the weekend with us. Rob & Kate drove from Kentucky and Chris, Rachel, & Ainsley from Ohio. It was the most beautiful St. Patty's day weekend I have ever experienced (and not just because of the weather!)
We spent a lot of time outside...
Buddy and Ainsley became fast friends! She giggled like crazy Friday night whenever he got close. By Sunday afternoon, he was giving her lots of slobbery kisses (which we all discouraged) but was pretty cute nonetheless!
The girls also treated themselves to pedicures :)
We are so blessed to have the kind of friends that cheesy movies are made of, the kind of friends that everyone hopes to have, and the kind of friends that fill life with joy and laughter and depth and meaning.
(...and distance means very little with friendships like that!)
