friends...


this is my friend CC and her DH marty - they came to visit baby noah on their way to a wedding in houston. CC and i have a special friendship. we have been friends forever - ever since we were both nerds in high school... i met CC the year after my junior year in high school. i was accepted to the governor's school of south carolina for science and math and it was this awesome summer program in charleston, sc. we got to live at a college dorm and it was for me an amazing time. i met some friends there that were brilliant and so very cool.
i didn't meet CC when i got to the dorm that at the start of the program when we moved in. CC had arrived before i did. i was nervous as i was socially challenged, but when i saw her side of the room and i saw she had a hello kitty pencil box, i KNEW that we would get along just fine. and it is amazing that we haven't really seen each other but like maybe 5 times in all since that summer program in 1991. but we have one of those easy friendships - nothing is strained or ackward even after not seeing each other for a couple of years and living 1000s of miles apart.
david and i even got engaged at their place in boston in 1999!
CC is one of them. she is a true jack of all trades! she is a doctor from Harvard, travels to tibet to volunteer at a clinic, is a stain glass artist and takes amazing pictures. heck, she even crocheted noah a blanket!
and i am glad we got a chance to catch up and reconnect. she and marty loved noah - CC said noah is one of the most "chill babies" she has ever met (and she is a pediatrican)! and we have chatted about hopefully in the future possibly living only a day's drive away from each other but even if we don't, i know we will be good friends for a long time to come.

Oh Caroline, this is wonderful, good friends like these are hard to come by and I am happy that you two have remained close even through the distance. I have a couple of friends like this as well and even though I have numerous friends no one can compare to the bond we share. Glad you have someone like that too!!!
