I've known Amy for the past 22 years (wow, that makes me feel old). We met in the fourth grade when she wore shorts to the first day of school (shorts weren't allowed at our school back then, so she was unknowingly quite the rebel). We've lived so much of life together as friends, and I love her so very much.
A month ago, Amy and her husband Dan welcomed the newest member of their family, Willa, and I was so happy to meet her when I visited Rockford last week. I find myself wondering how on earth we will be able to take care of one child, and Amy now has three. I don't know how she does it, but I was definitely in awe.
The Jarretts are a beautiful family navigating newborn life, work, a three year old, homeschooling, and a dog that may or may not have taken a liking to pooping in the house with grace, humor, and a lot of hard work. They are the good ones, and I'm so happy that despite all the years and all the miles, we can always pick up right where we left off.
Cheers to you Willa and the beautiful family that calls you their own.
