Love Thursday: Emma’s Pasta Roni

One of the best parts about being back in America was that I got to spend time not only with my childhood friends, but also with some of their children. You know, their mini-mes — the ones who look just as you remember your friend looking at that age.

What an amazing experience, especially when the last time I was home some of them didn’t even exist…and now they’re actual people!

My friend Nicole and her husband Nathan (high school sweethearts!) have two daughters, Emma (8 in a couple weeks) and Ava (4), and new baby boy Colton. All ridiculously adorable, I assure you, and at least one of them is a writer/blogger in the making….

Yes, I got a little note on my Facebook page the other day that Emma noticed this in her Pasta Roni:

And it was Thursday.

Don’t you just *love* it?

Happy Love Thursday everyone!

    a bunch of babies is a bunch of love. i wonder how old my grandsons will be when i finally stop calling them the babies. what they don’t realize is that i still call all the parents “the kids”. great post.

    I think your baby is always your baby 🙂 Thanks for coming by Margie!
