Introducing... Alicia at Experiencing Each Moment

Let me introduce you to my friend, Alicia. She's at Experiencing Each Moment.

You know those friends that you go forever without seeing or talking to and then one day you meet up and it's like you just talked the day before? Alicia is one of those kind of friends for me.

I've known her since the first day I moved into a dorm at Ouachita Baptist University over 14 years ago. Wow! I can't believe it's been that long! She was my R.A. (resident assistant) that year. I remember when I checked into the dorm and she figured out I was on her hall she gave me a huge hug. We had a lot of fun that year. Our rooms were right next door and she had a t.v. and a car. = ) Alicia, do you remember our Anne of Green Gables marathon on parents weekend? = )

Over the years we've fallen into and out of each other's lives lots of times. The last 5 years we've been more in than out. Being pregnant with our first children at the same time and emailing constantly about our symptoms, subsequent c-sections, and parenting challenges might be a big reason for staying connected now.

Recently Alicia started her own blog. Today she has a great post about a marriage conference she and her husband, Dan, attended over the weekend. Go here to read some convicting and encouraging ideas about making marriage work.

Before you leave, do you have a friend you can go weeks, months or years without communicating with and then pick up again like you were never apart? What's her name? Where did you meet? How long have you known each other? I'd love to hear your story in the comments.

O.k., now go check out Alicia. = )

I do have several college friends like that - there are three of us that waited to have our first and then were all pregnant within about 10 months of each other with #1. What a special friendship. :)

(And did I know you went to Ouachita? I looked at school there and eventually went to John Brown Univ. in AR!)
