After being apart for 2 years, they are finally moving back!
It's hard to say good-bye to those friends that have been with you through it all --P and L have been friends with DH for a long time, and I met L on DH's and my first date. P started working for DH while DH and I were dating, and after our wedding, P and L started dating. They were married a short time later and we've been the best of friends ever since.
We've seen each other through different jobs, wards, apartments, children, sickness, hard times, good times, etc. etc. When my water broke with #1, they were on their way to our apartment with pizza --and ended up eating it with us at the hospital instead.
When they moved, we were quite sad. Pretty depressed, really. We tried to make friends with other people --invited couples over for dinner, games, etc. And although we do have some pretty good friends now, it's still not the same. There's still not that closeness that was there. Perhaps that comes when you experience many "firsts" together. All in all, it was really hard to see them leave and only speak to them occasionally.
They moved back to Cali and we stayed in UT. But, after 2 years, they have decided to repent (LOL!) and move back! In fact, the apartment they got is only a couple of miles from our home. YAY!
I can't wait to see them... :) Today is the day!
