Last week my long time friend, Deb, and I spent some time together. We had a wonderful visit which included a conversation about how long we have known each other and the history that we have shared.
Mr. D met Deb's hubby John at work. The guys rode motorcycles together. Before Mr. D got his motorcycle license I actually rode on the back of John's bike, to be legal. Time passed and John met Deb -- then we met Deb. Then we all hung out together, the guys golfing and playing softball, us girls sitting in the bleachers watching our men. Time flew by and Mr. D and I attended John and Deb's wedding. Within a few years Mr. D and I welcomed our first baby. Six months later John and Deb welcomed their first baby. Seventeen months went by and Mr. D and I had baby #2. Then 15 months later John and Deb welcomed a daughter. Two days later Mr. D and I welcomed our Baby Girl.
Deb called me from the hospital wondering why the heck I wasn't there yet. I wondered the same thing. The next day, I joined her and we enjoyed being hospital roommates. It was the best.
Saturday morning Deb invited me over to learn how to make a secret family recipe for cookies.
I am so honored to be included in on this Italian family recipe.
I lost count measuring the 5 cups of flour - 3 times!
Deb and John remodeled their nice kitchen
into this amazing kitchen and did all the work themselves.
They are very creative and talented in the home decor/design department.
They have yummy cookie recipes too!
Deb is an excellent cook and talented seamstress
I am the lucky recipient of one of her adorable aprons
(she made the aprons we are wearing)
Deb is working on starting a blog -- when she gets it up and running, I'll let ya all know. Prepare to be amazed.
Thirty years of friendship, bikes, baseball, babies, a move across the country and our history continues on....as our first born daughters marry this year.
Our history continues.
Here's to many more years of memories Deb!
