A Bestie Came to Visit!!
One of my best friends from my years in China came to visit this week! It was so so good to see her again! It has been over 8 years since I last saw her and like the best friendships seem to… we picked right up where we left off. Well, after we stopped hugging, that is. We would hug and then stop hugging to be able to look at each other and then hug again. 😉 This may have happened 3 or 4 times, haha! She is still so sweet and so funny. So quick recap via photos of the last two days:
Us together!!! Side note: the shirt I’m wearing is one she gave me 9 years ago! I still love it and wear it after all this time! 🙂
Because no reunion is really complete without a little tai chi. [in the green is Ding Jing’s friend, Ruth]
Or a neck/shoulder/arm stretch… 😉 [and that’s my grandfather! He actually teaches an exercise class so we were learning new stretches!]
The next day we went to the zoo, but I completely forgot my camera. So just use your imagination. 😉
Last night, after dinner at our house, we got busy making the cutest little desserts (recipe coming soon)! This is my favorite of the series of photos because even though our heads are cut off, you can see us laughing together!
My sister, Abby, also adores Ding Jing so she drove up to hang out with us too! We may or may not have randomly burst out into a Chinese children’s song about tigers while we were at the zoo. Ha!
The biggest thing that has changed about Ding Jing after all these years is that she has a son now! The last time I saw her 8 years ago, she was pregnant… and now I finally got to meet her sweet son!
But not a lot else has changed… 😉
I am so so so thankful that she was able to come! What a blessing to see her precious face again!
