I know what you are thinking… are they honestly thankful for birds? If any of you know me well, you would know that no, I am not thankful for birds, especially big scary birds like Buzzards!
I am, on the other hand, EXTREMELY grateful for some of the greatest people that Slim and I have ever met.
Here is a bit of their back story.
Sarah Buzzard met Slim just before we got married. She was starting to get very interested in graphic design and a mutual friend introduced them because of their common love for design. Slim came home the first night after meeting her and told me that he couldn’t wait for me to meet her.
A few weeks later, we went out to lunch with Josh and Sarah along with her toddler son Zach. I knew right away that we would be great friends!
As a matter of fact, we were getting married the next week and we invited them to our wedding, knowing full well that it was weird to invite people you hardly know. There was just something different about them. I knew that they were something special.
Almost 6 years later, I am so thankful that I trusted our instict to pass along that invite.
For about 3 years, they were our weekly date. We would go to their house for Buzzillian (Buzzard Gillian) events. We would laugh until we cried. They are just such fun people. They are brilliant. Sarah is super creative and stylish. Josh is an incredible chef and such a talented musician. Josh’s son Taylor is an amazing athelete with such a fun personality, and Zach- there is so much to say about him. He is probably the smartest child I have ever met. He is one of those kids where when he says something, I just take it as authority because he truly knows better than me.
Unfortunately a few years ago, they needed to relocate to the other coast. I was heartbroken, but knew it would be best for them. We haven’t let the distance come between us. Even though sometimes it is months between visits, we still do our best to connect with them on a regular basis.
So today, and everyday, I am super grateful to have such wonderful friends!
