my college roommate

i went to college at the university of michigan in ann arbor.  it feels like a lifetime ago when i first met my freshman year roommate, jen fata.  i remember her kind smile, easy going nature and petite size (we're both 5 footers).  we hit it off immediately and have been close friends ever since.  through the years (almost 20 years!), we've been in touch over boyfriends, breakups, careers, engagements, weddings and then kids.  and always over distance as she lives in michigan. so what a treat when jen and her family came to visit orlando.  such a special reunion to see each other after several years and introduce our babies for the first time.  she has three lovely little ones....jack, elizabeth and natalie.  take a look at this beautiful family...

thanks for reading,
