  • Welcome!…

    to “A Step Inside”… our personal family blog, documenting the craziness of our every day life.. Sit back, enjoy, laugh, and share in the road we travel..

    I'm Bridget.. A SAHM (stay at home mom), mother of 3, and a follower of Christ. I'm also a photographer, and passionate about life.. I hope to share that w/ you too! Life isn't always perfect, but it's perfectly created in His plan. I'm beyond thankful for God's grace and His many blessings!

A Visit from NC Friends

I was SO stinkin’ excited about my dear, dear, dear friend (did I mention she’s a dear friend?) and her son T.J. coming for a visit..  Kim & I met through an online mommy board back in 2000.  Hard to believe twelve years have gone by.  We were both expecting our bundles of joy in July of 2001.  T.J. & Kaylor are just days apart in age.  Kim is one of those friends that you really feel an instant connection w/, and like you’ve known her forever.

Even though their visit wasn’t NEAR long enough, I was still thankful for the time that we did have together..  Wine, doing nails, talking til wee hours in the morning.  So much fun.

She’s one of THE sweetest, most sincere, caring, kind, generous, thoughtful & beautiful women I know.  She’s truly a blessing.  Thank you, KimmyLou for twelve years of friendship!  Many laughs, many late nights, some tears, and many more laughs… Cheers, I love ya!!

Poor T.J…. no rest around our house, w/ these three monkeys..
My cutie-pie boy;

We then headed out for just a few quick shots of Kim & T.J. together…

T.J.  you just might have a future in photography!  Thanks for snapping this pic!

So back in 2002, several of the moms from our forum met up in Kentucky for a long weekend get together.  This is T.J. & I, when he was around 15 months old:

So I highly encourage (er… made) T.J. reinact that photo w/ me, 10 years later… hehe…

When we came back from doing a few pictures, my sweet husband was washing the cars, including Kim’s… Awe.  He’s such a sweet man!

Wow, I don't know what is making me cry more, the beautiful pictures or the beautiful comments. Love you so very much. I wish we could have stayed longer. Our friendship means so much to me and we definitely have to do this more often. I love you so much, Idgy! Thank you for being such an amazing friend, mom, wife and person and for always accepting me for who I am. I was truly blessed the day our paths collided. I fell in love again with your whole family. One day you'll be taking pictures of our grand kids. I wonder how T.J. will feel about sitting on your lap then! Ha ha! Love you!

These pictures speak volume to the friendship and love you two have. I think it is a special friendship and could tell how much love you have for each other. Thanks for sharing the pics and friendships. :0)
