This week my dear friend Rachel came up to visit me from Lexington, KY. She came in just in time to see the bridge collapse on Wednesday and left tonight.
Rachel is such a wonderful friend, and we barely ever get to see each other. The last time I saw her was at her wedding a year ago, and before that it was my wedding two years ago! So any time we get together is precious. She had also never met Israel, so it was wonderful for her to get to do that. We had a fun relaxing week of sleeping in late, getting pedicures, going to the farmer's market, and shopping. I know, I know...life is rough. :)
I love you, Rachel and I am so blessed that you came up to see me! I miss you already!
