What a fun weekend I had! Just last week I found out my dear childhood friend, Kiley, was traveling through Kansas City. KC is only about 2.5 hours away from me! I was so excited, and made plans to travel down to see her!
Kiley and I have been friends ever since we were 4 years old, so I feel like I've known her my whole life! We met when my family lived in California. Our moms were friends, so were Kiley and I! In fact Lori (Kiley's mom) got my mom hooked on Teatime! Immediately, Kiley and I 'clicked'! We had a lot of good times together!!
When I was 7, my family and I moved back to Iowa, but our families stayed in touch. Despite the miles between us, Kiley and I have stayed good friends by phone-calls, Facebook, email. But we haven't seen each other face to face since we were 8 years old - 15 years!
Here's a picture of us at 6 years old...
And us now at 22 and 23!

It was absolutely crazy to finally see her in person! I can't even describe the feeling of see my little friend all grown up!! She was still her bright, cheerful, sun-shiny self only all grown up!! I'm so blessed to have such a special friend, it is rare to still be friends with your childhood best friend! Not many people are blessed to have a life-long friend!!
Additionally, I have even more exciting news... We've been able to work it out for me to fly out to California this summer to visit her and the rest of her family!! I'm excited to see them all again!!
