Double Dating! Dustin, Mike, Me, Heather
*I would like to point out that Mike and I got a good laugh out of this photo tonight because Mike looks like he is twelve years old and my eyebrows look like they've never met a pair of tweezers!
Graduation Day! So many memories on Bison Hill.

Of course Heather and I were both bridesmaids in each other's weddings which was really special. We had a lot of fun planning out dresses, colors, venues and cakes during the months leading up to our weddings After I got married, Mike and I stayed in Oklahoma. After Heather got married, she and her husband moved to Kansas City. Over these nearly twelve years of marriage, we've been able to visit each other often-- either us driving north or them driving south. In her pre-child years, Heather was an art teacher at in inner-city school in Kansas City while I taught middle school English in a suburb of Oklahoma City. Her oldest child and my oldest were all born the same year, while our youngest children were also born during the same year, just three months apart. It seems like all of our seasons in life have lined up side by side. And even though we are in different states, life has continued to march along together to a similar beat. I am so thankful for lifelong friendships. Friendships that have stood the test of time and have aged to such a deep, comfortable level. A level closer to sisterhood than friendship.
Me, Lucas, Heather, and Lily
