...that two little girls who lived on the same street in the foothills of salt lake would end up sleeping in the same room in a house on a hill in san francisco??
indeed, mccaye and i grew up on opposite ends of augusta way and about a month ago serendipitously became roommates here in san fran. i feel so happy and blessed that in this case, life came full circle!
here we are in mccaye's bakery kiosk downtown. she is a baker and budding businesswoman. she also is wicked good at tennis and hoola hooping, so much fun to be around, gives great advice, and i swear i find out about hidden talents she has everyday. totes one of the coolest girls ever.
with jane living in the city too, that makes three of us from the same home ward now together in san francisco. in a new place it is such a huge blessing to have friends around that i have real history with. we learned primary songs together, had girls' camp adventures together, can reminisce about neighborhood traditions and characters - we know where each other came from and have that sweet, organic kind of friendship that you only find with childhood pals.
last week we went to the oakland temple together and it was divine. we couldn't help but comment that those young women's leaders in the good old mp17th ward would be proud! there was something so awesome about being in the temple with these two - and it seems like we were little girls just yesterday!
tonight jane and blake hosted us, along with mccaye's brother phil, and a few other friends for sunday dinner. it was lovely, familiar, and felt just like home. here's to the cherished friends and all the memories in the 84108!
