Something I am going to miss the most about Northern California is Julia. Of course I am going to miss my own friends for my own selfish reasons. I freakin’ love my girlfriends here! They make time for me and include me into their daily lives like I have never been away. They get me. They love me. They understand me. They know me. And JUST as important is that Maisie has a little friend here that she loves just as much as I love my friends! As much as she possibly can anyways! I have never seen two 1 1/2 year olds play so well together.
Maisie will run up to Julia’s house squealing in excitement! She will poke her eye with such enthusiasm as she yells, “EYE!” She will dance with Julia, hold hands with Julia, sit and play with Julia, pose for photo shoots with Julia, play hide and seek with Julia, kiss and hug Julia. Julia is her best friend. They do everything together (even eat sushi together…not really raw fish, calm down).
So I am going to miss Julia for Maisie. It is one of the things that I have to grieve as we are getting ready to move back to Europe. Julia. I love Julia as much as Maisie loves her. And I love her mom and her dad too. This is the hardest part. Here are some cute pictures we took of them at our little sushi place that we love!
