Last week I hopped a flight to Phoenix. Joy picked me up at the airport – with a passenger. Her name is Ella and she is three months old. She’s adorable. She’s sweet. She takes an amazing selfie – just like her Aunt Amy.
And she’s going to grow up in Hawaii.
Can you even imagine? Their little family is moving to, like, the number one vacation spot in the world. Incredible.
And I plan to go visit, for sure. I mean, twist my arm, you know? But…it takes a few extra dollas to go to Hawaii than it does to go to Phoenix, and I HAD to meet Ella before she relocates to the Pacific Islands.
We spent the day relaxing. It was so fun to meet that precious little baby. But maybe even more fun was watching my good friend thrive in her new role as a mother. Joy and I have known each other for nearly a decade now, and I associate her with my own roaring 20’s. We had a good time, yes indeed. Now she’s a MOM. And a great one at that! It was heartwarming to witness.
I’m excited for their family and the Aloha adventure that lies ahead. And I think Joy needs to start a blog! All in favor say aye….
Do you have friends that you associate with one life stage who are now in another? What’s your dream relocation spot?
