I love seeing old friends. We’re able to go back and see who we’ve become through the eyes of our past selves and marvel at all of the growth. Emily is one of my very best friends from growing up, and I recently visited her and her husband Matt at their home to take pictures for their baby Caroline’s first birthday! I was thinking about how Emily and I would get in trouble for passing notes in class while watching her fix her daughter’s hair and almost couldn’t believe it. What did our notes say? Did they contain even the tiniest of traces of the blessings to come ten years later? Caroline is absolutely precious, and I am so thankful to still know her parents and to be able to meet her in time for her first birthday.
