Meet our friends David and Aida. These two, they are mentors to us. Parenting, faith, family, music, hard questions. All of it. She is a kindred spirit. He is honest and gentle. Whoa. Stunningly gifted.
They cuddle our kids. They value health and wellness. They recall stories and answer questions in such a way that they wisely give advice without even knowing it — and Matt and I meet eyes at each other and know we’ll make a change or have an amazing conversations. They are active and compassionate… and bring us food and drop us off at the airport and … go for bike rides with us… well, they are simply love.
This weekend I got a last-minute text saying both of their kids were going to be home and I JUMPED on the chance to take some family photos. Because previously, I hadn’t figured out how to ask if I may take them without sounding like a stalker (although our friends should know by now I ADORE taking photos of them, it fills my tank and brings me joy!). So I was kinda relieved when they reached out. And my word. It was an HONOR. They are so beautiful.
Thank you for being such wonderful mentor friends and role models for us. We are so blessed by you both!
