the elusive ninnygoat

There are many good friends in life. Friends to love, friends to laugh with, cry with. Share tickles with and spoons with. Friends who like coffee and friends who don't. Friends you see at school and friends you see once in a while. But every now and then, if you've been really blessed, you have a friend that makes you want to move.

My friend is Nancy Jean. A most lovely lady that i have known for 9 years now! She has been one of my best friends for the longest time, and we have been through thick and thin together.
to name a few: Lorne Smokey-Day and his undies, a bear out side our tent at corner rapids, LIT, skinny dips, vengeful tubeing, distance apart, time together, many many a time cuddling under the bright duvet and so many more!

Nancy was visiting me here this past weekend in Ottawa, and we had such a lovely visit. Our mouths didn't stop moving from the moment she arrived to the moment she left(with the exception of the few hours of sleep we got), we could probably have given
yap yap a run for her money!

Nancy reminded me of all the things that I love and want to do, we feed off each other, encourage each other to do new and exciting things, and cheer each other on from far off places (well usually she is the one in far off places, my need to travel is being lived through her!).

While their are very many people I wished lived here in Ottawa with me so I could see them all the time, Nancy is a girl that I would actually move back to Saskatoon for, in a snap.

(or if she could be convinced to come to Ottawa that would be awesome too!)

What a lovely gal.

Hi Nancy. Hi Kate. I am here on the other coast. Met 5 people from Saskatoon tonight!!! They have all moved to downtown Vancouver and all used to go to the connection at emmanuel.

Remember when I helped baptize you kate?

That was the first baptism I ever did - and tonight I did my first baby dedication!!
