This past November, our good friends, Maritza & Sara, moved away. They had been our bestest buddies and our go-to peeps for fun, support, and laughs. So, we were THRILLED that we got to spend one short, precious day with them this past weekend when they stopped in Chicagoland for a layover on a journey from LA to Mississippi.
I'm not 100% sure how well Sara and Sosini remembered each other, because they were 19 and 18 months old, respectively, when the big move happened. But, not surprisingly, they reconnected instantly and were BFFs in about 5 minutes flat!
Maritza was one of the original masterminds behind our fabulous play group, so of course, we had to have a play date while they were in town! A good portion of the play group was able to come over to have a really fun barbecue lunch (for which Andrew expertly smoked a brisket) mixed with some good old-fashioned mischief making. These kids are such a funny bunch! I didn't get very many good pictures (seriously, was Johanna just standing behind me the entire time? how did she not show up in one photo?!), but you get the idea.
We are so lucky to have such great friends-- the ones that live here AND the ones who now live in LA. We miss you, Maritza & Sara!!!
