My Life Lately

 So I know I've been a blog slacker lately. Here's a few moments to help illustrate what's been happening with me the last 2 months!
 My favorite Chicago dwelling family, the Hanks, came to DC for Kevin's marathon. I love it when my BFF Naomi is here, and since I like my cousin Kevin and their girls tons too, it was all around good times :)
 Right before they got here, I finished the jean quilt I'd been working on. I wanted them to have a blanket for their bed-good incentive!
 I week later, I took myself down to the Tidal Basin for the Cherry Blossom Festival. They were just blooming when the Hanks were here and a rash of warm weather was making the festival a short one. Still, glad I was able to see some of the beautiful cherry blossoms.
 Something about the blossoms just makes me all kinds of happy inside :)
Finally, I worked out my schedule at the hospital so I had 8 days in a row off, and so mid-Apri I went to Chicago to see Naomi and fam! We didn't take many pictures, although we did paint their kitchen and Naomi has those photos on her blog. It was so wonderful being there with Naomi, Kevin, Brooklyn and Lily. Love them so much! I'm so glad they let me be a part of their lives. Above is from our last night's trip to Carrabbas. Lily loves her spaghetti- and Kev was such a good sport when she decided to...share :)
My cutie pie's growing up so fast!!
Me and Naomi! I couldn't ask for a better best friend in the whole entire world. There's no way to describe how much I depend on her! She's so amazing, beautiful, giving, loving, and supportive. I'm so lucky to have a friend like her!
