Today I left one best friend...
Only to meet up with another.
Chelsea was the first real friend I made in college and we have grown as close as sisters (but without the catfights-- praise Jesus I only have biological brothers). In November, she is having a baby boy! Obviously, "Auntie Rock," as I have been dubbed, is already spoiling baby Oliver rotten!
Right now, Chelsea's getting ready for the birth at her Grandparents' estate (yes, estate) in Bloomington, IN, where she moved in May.
"Shepherd's Rest" is what I would describe as a homestead. It has a fancy name, lace curtains, antique furniture and appliances, and a long, gated driveway.
If Betty and Don Draper moved to the midwest, I think they would live here. (of course, advertising isn't exactly a major industry in Bloomington, Indiana-- but I suppose Don could teach it at IU??)
I'm no shepherd, but I sure am enjoying my rest here, kissing pregnant bellies, relaxing on porch swings, and drinking lemonade with one of my favorite people in the whole world.
Who, by the way, may just be the most beautiful pregnant woman ever..
