I have a new friend.  We met casually at church.  Her youngest daughter is the spitting image of my Button Boy’s “betrothed” Drama Girl.  Well, come to find out…she has a blog.  I have become a daily reader of her blog (she updates it almost daily…much more frequently than I do!).  Vicki is a SAHM (I still haven’t figured out why she named her blog “Not So SAHM”), she is a believer who leads her children and she  teaches them God’s truth.  She has been married 13 years to Du (I haven’t figured out if “Du” is a nickname or his given name…I am quite curious, though) and they are a military family, which means they move…a lot.  She home-schools her eldest daughter, which amazes me when anyone feels called to home-school, it is as important a decision as any in a parent’s or child’s life. 

In the last week or so, I have found out that she is moving in the next few months.  UGH!  The military!  I have grown up in Montgomery, and have had friends come and go over the many years and I am not finding it any easier as an adult.  I only have a few months to get to know Vicki better, face-to-face.  I know that our friendship will continue to grow in the next few months…and luckily, we will continue to grow our friendship over this wonderful anomaly of Bloggityville USA over the years to come! 

Please visit her blog…find out what a humorous and caring person she is.

Meet my friend, Vicki!

    Sniff, sniff…snort. Those are such sweet words to write. Thank you. I’m genuinely flattered. And now you’re making me sad to leave! I’ve had so much fun here and have LOVED being back in the south, where people understand that tea should be sweet and kids should be monogrammed.

    One of the hard things about my husband’s job is that we have to leave the friends that we make. But it’s never say never and it’s always “see you later” not “goodbye”, because you never know if/when we’ll be back.

    That being said we need to get together and do something about this!
