When they’re your friends, right? It’s that much sweeter. We met at church…a part of the same tribe. You know how that is. We just clicked and I think they’re the coolest. Matt is a pain in the butt and doesn’t hold back his opinion in any of my dating life (secretly appreciated). He sings in a quartet, sells insurance and is kind of funny(don’t encourage him). He’s also crazy in love with his wife, Amy and I don’t blame him. She’s one of my favorite friends even though we don’t get to spend a ton of time together. There’s just that thing…that I-getchu-girl kind of bond we share. She’s an incredibly gifted vocalist, loves her some Jesus, is gentle, kind, yet fierce and quite frankly a bad-a. They met on one of those dating websites we shant speak of and the rest is history.
Two years later, these Avett Brother freaks (same here…I’m a fan. Every NC’er ought to be), they had a bebe. Meet Miss Avett Rose Gorman. She’s the sweetest little thing ever! I got to snuggle her to sleep. She melted in the crook of my neck (picture at bottom) and I flippin’ melted….like ovary flips (tmi..sorry). I was whispering and cajoling her to call me Auntie Christina. A little creepy, but it’s gonna happen for sure.
What I loved about that day is just the simple reminder that couples can be truly best friends in every way. I love the way they love each other. They are team Gorman; totally for one another…totally proud of each other. Goals. It exists…the real love stuff.
Did I mention that they named Avett after Avett Brothers? Duh, Christina…they gathered that.
Welcome Avett Rose Gorman!
