My college roommate and wonderful friend Michele came to visit for the weekend and met Barrett. I think he brought his "A game, " right, Michele? She was there to witness his first rolling over at home and gave him lots of extra hugs and kisses, as if he doesn't get enough from us anyway! We found some great deals at Ann Taylor Loft and introduced Barrett to the fun of shoe shopping. And of course it was also nice to have a girls' night out and go to dinner, drink a glass of wine, and have some girl talk over a caprese salad and big bowl of pasta while the baby slept at home. We only wish Michele lived closer so that we could see her more often - the drive to Minneapolis is a long haul! I can't believe it's been 13 years since we lived down the hall from each other in good old Dorsey Hall. Like a fine wine, we've only gotten better with age!
