foto friday: my rosanna

My friend Rosanna is a gem. When she moved here almost 5 years ago, we had no idea we’d become such good friends…or that she’d still be here five years later. The plan was a little shorter time in MN, but I am very glad God extended it and I’ve had her in my life for these years. Even when she and her husband Rob and son Jude leave for the wild West in October, we’ll stay close by any means possible. It’s just that kind of friendship – not one to be given up on just because distance gets in the way. πŸ™‚

With our first pregnancies, our due dates were mere weeks apart. This time around, I’m further ahead by 15 weeks. I’m hoping our little missy makes her appearance before they move, so Rosanna can hold my sweet girl. We’re also betting on the fact that since Rosanna is so much sicker this time (like I was), she is having a girl too, but we won’t know that for a couple weeks still.

At any rate, its been so wonderful to share life with this beautiful woman. πŸ™‚ The other day a mutual friend commented “I love how you guys do everything together!” And its true! We were married within weeks of each other and became newlyweds at the same time, started a small group with our guys and another couple (the awesome Gulbransons…I’ll talk about my dear friend Jes another time!), introduced each other to new music/places/fun, had our boy babies, did the new mom thing together, went to a MOMS group together, vacationed to Tahoe together, and now we’re awaiting the births of our second bebes. And believe it or not, we did NOT plan to match when we both showed up wearing the same. exact. dress. the other night. lol.

Many a fun girls night out has been had, many a cup of coffee and conversation at Starbucks and Caribou, many a chat on our couches, some tears shed as we bring our burdens to the Lord together, and many a laugh as we share the latest funny thing that our kid has done. I credit Rosanna with my vastly improved sense of style and makeup skills – she’s my personal shopping consultant and makeup guru. πŸ™‚

Much has happened and changed in our lives over the past five years, but God’s love and faithfulness has remained constant and is evident in our lives. I will, without a doubt, miss her to pieces when she’s far far away in NV and CA, but thank God for FaceTime and text messages and Facebook and phone calls. Love you, Rosanna dear!

my life is full and beautiful because the Lord of all creation has seen fit to take me as His own. I have a wondeful husband, a sweet puppy, a beautiful baby boy, a lovely house in a small town, and two great jobs that allow me to mostly work from home. I throw the occasional temper tantrum, love good food, bake drool-worthy treats, and have a love affair with French-pressed coffee and vanilla lattes.
