Ladies and Gentleman...
If you've read my blog, you know that Lacy is my best friend. Truly. This girl is amazing. We've known each other since elementary school, in fact, I remember when she came back from private school, and at recess sitting on the monkey bars listening to her tell me, alyssa, tristin, melissa phillips....all of us girls, all the crazy stories of what went on there.
It was epic.
But we were never really friends all our school years. Lacy is the fun, bubbly super outgoing one. She's always been the one laughing and writing on her self with sharpies and being quirky. For some reason in high school, I couldn't stand her. ha. serious, I couldn't, and she really wasn't too keen on me...I was blunt, said whatever I was thinking, hated giggling and was pretty moody. I know, hard to imagine.
If you would've told me in high school that Lacy would become one of my closest, dearest friends; my best friend in fact; I would've laughed and thought you were crazy. But its true. She is.
As we overcame the curse of being a jerk teenage girl (insert giant laugh), we began to realize how much we were alike, and how our differences really went well together. She came to my wedding, where I stoically never shed a tear, I went to hers, and grinned my head off while she sobbed outrageously loud all the way down the ever-loving aisle. We've had all three of our babies just months apart, and lost babies and grieved together...We've loved Jesus and prayed with each other, We've been the shoulder each other cried on, the friend I've laughed with most, the mother who I feel most comfortable sharing my regrets, my fears, my downfalls with...
Lacy...you mean the world to me...I would never want to have weathered the stormy waters of motherhood and domestic venture, without you. What a better world mine is, because I have you in it with me.
And ladies and Gentleman, did I mention this girl is INCREDIBLY talented?! no? well she is, like seriously a rockstar. She is the one who got me to start sewing, I canned my first jar of preserves with her, and embarked on so many crafty experiments because of this lovely lady. And now she's started a blog.
