Yesterday, I had the privilege of getting to spend the afternoon with Erin from $5 Dinners and Amy from Amy's Finer Things. Erin was in town for a wedding so it worked out for us all to meet up for a few hours at Borders. It's always fun to meet fellow frugal zealots and Amy and Erin are every bit the real deal.
And Amy, well, she's just as kind and gracious as can be. She's a minimalist after my own heart and I'm so glad she lives somewhat nearby so that I have the opportunity to see her every other month or so.
It was fun to chat about everything from babies to photography (Erin gave us tips on how to make better use of our un-extravagant cameras!) to keeping computer time in check, managing three little ones, and laundry! I only wish we'd have had about three more days to hang out together.
My favorite thing of all, though, was Erin's precious baby boy. Isn't he just the most adorable little guy? At only 5 weeks old, he made my Silas (now 7 months old) look like a budding football player. I was reminded all over again just how quickly time flies and how much I don't want to waste this fleeting years of being a mom to little ones.
