Like We Knew Each Other Forever

That is how it felt from the moment our families met in our driveway. It was one of life's moments...One of those special moments you know for certain you will remember forever. It is the feeling that although you have just met someone, you have really known them all along. All these and so much more, my friends. These are the feelings we had when we finally met Nicolas' beautiful, amazing, lovely family on Saturday afternoon. As I hugged the woman who raised the man my girl fell in love with, I knew I had made a forever friend. And as our families mingled, and shook hands and hugged and laughed, I knew we have always been meant to meet and to join our lives through our two oldest children.









We prepared our lower level for their visit by adding some special touches to make their stay extra special. : )

And then suddenly, we were together!
We had a great dinner and hours of visiting and laughing until we finally had to sleep.

Sunday morning brought new friends and an easy but delicious breakfast.



We are so excited to have this week together. We have plans and days without plans. There will be coffee and tea and laughter, I'm sure. There will be movies and food and games as well. The adults will sit and visit and listen to the laughter of their seven children playing card games together. And a new chapter in our lives will begin.

Have a wonderful week!
Thank you for visiting!


Pinterest for the fun pics.

  13. That is wonderful. That’s how we felt when we met our son-in-law’s parents last week in Disney. We immediately were so comfortable with them. I just wish they didn’t live so far away...Russia!!
