It all started what seems like just moments ago, when this new
neighbor walked up to what is now my door, but was only Ryan's at the
time, knocked and told Ryan's roommate something to the effect "I know
there is a girl who lives here, and I just wanted to say Hi!" Of course, she
proceeded to follow Ryan's roommate into the house, and found me scrubbing
the kitchen in a faded old workout t-shirt and shorts. We talked, began walking a
few nights a week, I asked her to be in our wedding, we became pregnant
at the same time, and the rest is history!
All it took was one nosy neighbor (you know I love that about you Marce),
to start a friendship between two married couples, and now three and soon to be
four (Baby Alice Linda Phee is expected 12/2011) crazy kidlets.
Through the past three years, Giulietta and Charlie have enjoyed many play dates,
trips to the store, morning rides to preschool, baths to scrub off the dirt, and
swims in the pool together. As parents, we have only become closer because
of the friendship we have tried to foster between our children. And, these
two darlings are truly best friends, who seem to understand each other better
then anyone else. As the years go by, the hope is that they will only continue
to grow together.
After all..."A good friend is a connection to life - a tie to the
past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world."
