Awww geez. How can I even BEGIN to talk about these amazing people? Abby and I (yes, we have the same name. No we are not twins. Yes, that is a real question we have been asked many times by dense people) have been friends for more than 20 years. Wüt. We (along with our other 1/3, Jessa) have been truly, deeply besties for most of that time. This friendship has been one of the most shaping influences of my life. I am so profoundly grateful for Abby, and now Ross, her husband, and JUDE, their sweet little 11 month old.
The Williamsons are back in the US for a year, preparing to move to Nepal in 2018. They are one of the most rad families I know. Their wedding was my favorite wedding I've ever been to, because the people who know and love them are so fantastic and lead such fascinating, inspiring lives. That alone says a lot about Abby and Ross. Between the two of them, they've lived in Afghanistan, Nepal, Indonesia, and South Korea, and traveled extensively beyond that. Their kid already has like, I don't know, 6 countries in his passport or something. DANG JUDE.
We spent a sweaty evening romping around the Eno River Walk in Hillsborough, and had a great time catching up on life since the last time we all saw each other (like 18 months ago - we added two kids to the posse in that time span!). I'm really thankful to be living in the same area as them again (Abby and I grew up in RDU together, and then lived in Seattle together for 3 years), and am excited to hang out in the time before they move to Nepal.
Wish them well as they prepare for the next (huge) adventure, and check out their blog for more updates (click"join us!") : http://wewilliamsons.com
