Long Distance Relationships

We've been friends for something like ten years. The plan was to all live in the same place. Go to the same church. Maybe someday live on the same street and meet in the middle for coffee while the kids rode bikes around us.
However. God's plan was not our plan. This Christmas we all celebrated in different states - except Heather and I. So, I sent towels. State towels.

Katie in Illinois Jen in Texas Heather here in Arizona Robyn in Iowa

And maybe it just made us all feel just a bit closer.

Sorry the whole "wisteria lane" thing didn't work out. It just gives you good reasons to travel.

I like how Robyn couldn't move her towel, but had to put her face next to the oven door...

Love the towels ... good thing you LOVE to travel on planes! It would have been so boring had they all just moved across town!

Katie, why the heck are you out in the snow with your dishtowel?? I thought Robyn framed hers or something and was up against the wall. Wasn't until I read Blog Stalker's comment that I realized it was the oven....uh duh. Glad she didn't frame it...that would be weird.

What a great idea! You guys are cute ;)

Robyn said...

Of COURSE I had to leave it hanging up. Where do you think it is right now, 3 months later? Just love me.
Kel, I miss living in the same state as you :( Love you.
