This is my beautiful friend Amy. I love the way she laughs. As I took this picture this evening, she was washing my dishes. You know it's a true friend who will wash your dishes. :) She's a fellow mom of three... a "real" mom... although her house is (sickingly) much cleaner than mine can ever profess to be. Amy is my encourager. Even when I don't feel like it, from walking around the block, to making sure I'm where I need to be on Wednesday night... we help keep each other accountable, and for that I greatly appreciate her!
