Recently I was able to spend time with one of my dearest friends from college. Since moving to Seattle, I haven't had a lot of time with her and when we do see each other, I treasure the moments of catching up and seeing her face to face.
She has a 13 month old daughter named Berkeley. This visit was the third time I've seen her since she was born. Each time I'm amazed at how much she's grown and how much she reminds me of her mother. I loved playing with her and seeing her many smiles and hearing her little giggles. As I was getting ready to leave, her mom said to her, "Give Christy a kiss." Without an ounce of hesitation, she leaned forward and gave me a huge kiss.
