Today I'd like to introduce you to a friend of mine. A real life friend...one that has seen a lot of real life with me, I might add! Her name is Sarah. She and I were each other's spouses before we married our husbands. Wait, let me explain that...
Sarah and I graduated from Miami University (the one in Ohio, not Florida!) and decided we wanted to be world travelers. We hooked up with a company that sends Christian teachers overseas to teach English. They sent us to Morocco. As in North Africa. (Proof is in the photo below, taken in Marrakech, ten years ago!) Now that I have a daughter, I can't believe our parents ever allowed their 23 year old daughters to do this! But we were armed with college degrees and thought we could rule the world.
It was an amazing year. We truly were all each other had, and living in another culture, far away from all other family and friends, that's saying something. It was a bit of a pressure cooker at times. Sarah is the only person in the world, other than my immediate family, that I have ever had a knock-down, drag-out screaming fight with. It kind of bonds you for life, you know? Kind of like being married!
We have been in each other's weddings, traveled all over together, and have continued to make time for each other over the years. She is Henry's godmother, in fact. Someday she will teach him all about his crazy mother, when he's old enough to understand. :)
Why am I telling you all this? My friend Sarah is now pregnant with her first baby, due in August. She is hilarious and has lots of things to say on the subject, as you may imagine. So on this Friday afternoon, I am inviting you to take a trip over to her new blog, The Life of Blights. You will definitely be entertained! And be sure to tell her I said hi! :)
Have a great weekend!
