The two Rachels

Roughly seven years ago today, our Rachel (the baby) got together with another Rachel.

It was the Memorial Day holiday. We miss the family that the older Rachel is from. They live on the other side of the world.

It was a great holiday. We were also joined by the other Rachel's family and two other families. None still live in our neighborhood. We miss all of them greatly. One of the tough things about life is that friends move.

By the way, that's a little heart that someone painted on little Rachel's cheek.

Hey, so honored to see our girls together on your blog! That does feel like eons ago—esp as we sent our Rachel off to the prom last weekend. Keep your eye on your Rachel.

We miss you guys too. Wish we lived closer & could hang out together more often!

It's so hard when good people move away like that. Life is so short. But the very good ones will be able to pick up the phone years or months later and it will be like nothing happened, like no time passed. Especially if you know they think of you, it helps.
