Missing Fresno Today

3 Aug

Today one of my best friends, Gina, had her first baby. 

Gina and I have been friends since the 6th grade.  We sang duets at our 8th grade and High School graduations, we both moved to Southern California and graduated from the same college. 

When our best friend Robin had her first baby, Gina and I drove up to Fresno immediately to be there.  When another friend of ours got married, we flew to Alabama for the wedding.  We were each other’s bridesmaids, threw each other’s bridal showers.  Encouraged eachother through our Masters programs.  We were the ones who got out of Fresno!

When Gina had her first baby I always imagined be there for that too.

But 3 weeks ago, Gina moved back to Fresno.  She had her first baby today and I was not there.  I cried this afternoon.  Both from excitement and sadness.

The funny thing is, Andrew and I have plans to go to Fresno tomorrow night.  Just 1 day late.  I am looking forward to meeting the new baby girl: 

Trevi Marie Ornelas.  Isn’t she pretty?



I know that tomorrow will be just fine.  She will have rested a bit and a little more ready for visitors, sometimes it just stinks to be away from home.
