Do you like the new look? My very dear friend, Barclay Domier, designed the blog for me. I was just telling her the other day that I really enjoy blogging, but I want the site to look nice and I don't have the patience or skill to do it. Her husband and herself take really good pictures of their kids and their friends kids. The pictures of my kids were on her computer! Can you believe it?
I want to tell you a little about Barclay. Barclay and I met in college, Trinity International University. Actually her now husband, Vince, was best friends with my now husband, Ryan. In college we were a school year apart so we really weren't friends at all. It wasn't that we didn't like each other, but we were in different grades and had established our own friends. Little did we know that we would be doing life together.
We both got married really young. I was 20, but almost 21 and Barclay just turned 20 when she got married. We got married 2 weeks apart from each other. We still were not close friends until about two years after we got married.
We later started hanging out as couples and got to know each other more and more. We always had fun with the Domier and laughed a lot. We both started checking out the Chapel at the same time. Our friendship grew and it was a given that we and the McMahon's and Lyman's would hang out on Friday nights. (I will do another post about our other dear friends).
About 4 years ago we shared backyards and were neighbors! That was a lot of fun, because we stayed home with our kids and got to hang out a lot. Unfortunately our family grew quickly and we had to move.
I just wanted to share a little about Barclay and how she is a special friend in my life that I do life with. Our kids are the same age, so as you can see we have a lot in common. Thanks so much Barclay for designing the blog and being a great friend!
