Growing up we were like peas and carrots. Peeeeeaaas and carrots.
Every morning she’d pull up in her red and blue Corsica with the dent in the door (which we got, hand to God, one day when a black bear ran into us. Not the other way around! Patti & Randy, if you’re reading this, to this day I still don’t know how you got us both raised up without pulling all your hair out!!) She’d blast the heater…and the radio…and we’d slip and slide our way down the mountain to Richwood High School (home of the Lumberjacks…Go Jacks!!), rockin out the whole way.
Neeeeear, farrrrr, wher-EHHHHH-ver you are.
All day, we’d suffer through Calculus and greasy tater tots together (ok, who am I kidding? We LOVED those greasy tater tots!!) and then we’d head off to cheerleading practice where, as would only be appropriate, I was her back spotter. The last line of defense between her head and the gym’s hardwood floor. Double arabesques into a rotating Liberty? Not a problem…because see, I always had her back.
Fast forward…ahem….a few years and my BFF Erica is now a mom. A MOM!! To not just one, but TWO kiddos!
Meet: Miss Aubrey & Miss Kate
And now they are just like peas and carrots. Peeeeaas and carrots.
And someday it will be them having run-ins with kamikaze wildlife. And Matt & Erica will be the ones pulling their hair out. But just know this my friend, if you ever need me for anything, anything at all….like straightening out teenage twins….you just say the word and I’m there.
Because no matter where we go in this life….Neaaaar, farrrr, wher-EVVV-er you are….I will always have your back.
Love you guys!! All four of you!
Uhhhh….yeaaaa…can we just TALK about the fact that this girl had TWINS only about two months ago?! I know!
So apparently, according to their parents, Kate is the really mellow one and Aubrey is the drama-queen. Can you guess which one is which?? :)
“We-heeer number one!!” :) Justin said this one must’ve been taken after the Auburn game.
