Sometimes, pictures are so much better than words.
This past week our friends Kyle and Ashley invited us over for dinner. Crepes to be exact. For the life of me I cannot remember the exact recipe, but Ashley talks about it here. Rest assured, it was delicious. And yes, our diets went on hold after the second helping.
Not only was it delicious, but it was also such a joy to catch up with them. Whenever we get together, the fun is effortless. There are no gaps in conversation, no lack of laughter.
Of course, their breathtaking house (and Ashley's talented knack for design) always enthralls me. And, I would be fibbing if I said getting to hold their new baby wasn't a big perk for me. There's just something about holding a baby, their soft little heads, their shallow quick breaths as they sleep. Somehow, when I force Mabel to lie on her back and she glares at me, her back rigid with indignation, it just doesn't have the same effect.
