Last month we joined friends for our first time attending Fridays on the Front Porch at the Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill. It was a last hurrah of sorts before we said good-bye to Allison & family as they prepared for their move to the coast.

It was one of those weird weather summer evenings in the south where the humidity was high, clouds were looming and brimming with the tease of rain. Thankfully only a few sprinkles fell and we were able to enjoy the music and each other’s company. The boys ran around playfully, Elise got plenty of snuggles, and the adults had a few moments to catch up.
Having met when we were pregnant with our oldest boys, we’ve literally known, watched and loved each other’s kids as they were are own over the last 6 years. It was bittersweet waving good bye to Allison, her husband & boys as the evening ended. Technology almost makes it seem like they aren’t quite so far away now though and, honestly, I’m quite excited for them as they chase their dream and start this new adventure. (Plus it means I have a guest room close to the beach. 😉 )
Linking up with Mommy & Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious?
