Nothin' but friends = Nothin' but love!

This past Friday I was blessed with the opportunity to meet two Ethiopian adoption families! The famous "Team Alexander" and the amazing Morgans! I've met the Morgans once before, so this was an extra treat. They live close by!

Emily and fam. headed to Boston for a conference and we were able to hook up with them, Jen and Co. for a few precious hours. It was surreal. These people are like crack to me, just cannot get enough~

Me and the man of my dreams and prayers... I love you Abenezer! xoxo Auntie Lori

Almost two years in the making, I met Emily Alexander! It was like we'd known each other forever!

Most of the kids on the freedom trail in Boston!

What a pip! And a handsome one at that! Mr. Alexander himself! :)

Baby Abe and Jen... Jen Morgan is a newer friend who I adore. I cannot wait to meet her little Bela sometime this summer! :) Soon Momma, soon!

Eliza and happy Abe, this angel smiles ALL the time! It's incredible~
And who doesn't love Eliza?? She is the most wonderful loving teen I've ever met~
And finally, pizza! Emily and I shared that "glass of wine" spoken of so many times on the internet. It became a reality!
Random cuteness: My two "twins" in the backseat...

Out for a double date Saturday night with old friends Nancy and Don - Love you! Great conversation, eh food, and good wine! We seriously need to live closer. But that could be troublesome! :) xoxox

Geesh, what's next? Well, I'm horribly sick w/allergies.... My head is in a bubble.
Guess what!? Tuesday is charity:water update day!!!! I hope we don't have two wells because my videographer is out of town and I look like crap. SO, if the news is good, you won't know until the "reveal video". And we're headed out of town soon, so wait patiently!
Thanks again Team Ethhiopia - YOU have almost given TWO wells to TWO villages in rural Ethiopia. Mind blowing!


  1. What a dream! It was so much fun to finally get to meet you, and yet it just felt so natural walking along the Freedom Trail with you. Did Nick ever find out? :)

    Thank you for making the effort- it was such a joy! Can't wait to meet MP and Nick next time in Texas!!!

  2. Love this update and seeing all the joy that just shines in these pics.
    I'll admit it.
    I'm a tad jealous. I want to be there with all of those amazing folks too. I WANT TO HAVE WINE WITH LORI!
    Ok, I'm done pouting and I'm back to being super happy. Adore you.
    Can't wait to hear!

  3. Great update and looks like you have had a fun week with your friends. xoxo

  4. Looks like you all had so much fun. Love your reference to crack. You make me laugh every time I read your blog :)

  5. I'm SO jealous! Of you, and of the Morgans & Alexanders for getting to hang around with you and your beauties. Eliza is the bomb. But, you can be jealous of us because she lives 10 minutes away and babysat Ruth & Aster last weekend! Will you be going to the WHFC event in Newburyport on the 20th? Hope to see you there.
