Our Tribe...(and Some Really Great Blueberry Pie)

We celebrated Bryan's birthday with a little Sunday morning breakfast party... we feasted on breakfast tacos, homemade guacamole, mimosas + bloody mary's and quite possibly the world's most delicious blueberry pie made that morning by our amazing friend Achlee...

Besides lovely cousin Erin (who along with boyfriend Ben made us an equally incredible dinner Sunday evening) none of my family lives close by, so over the past decade (a decade! prior to Dallas I'd never lived anywhere longer than three years -- we moved 17 times when I was growing up...) we've forged a surrogate family -- our tribe if you will. We've seen each other through weddings, having babies, losing loved ones. We spend holidays together, celebrate birthdays together, vacation together, cry together…

We're awfully lucky to have such an amazing group of friends. Especially the ones that make incredible, incredible pies!

How delicious does that look!! What truly great friends you have. It's wonderful to be surrounded by dear friends if your family is far away. It is the same for me and I don't know what I'd do without my support network around me :)
