Moving to a new place is never easy. Especially if you've lived in a very tight-knit community your whole life. Moving to Arizona was bitter-sweet. I had a hard time leaving my family and friends. It made it even harder that I had a two month old. But my family was headed to the next chapter in our lives and we couldn't wait to start it. Thank goodness for Allie for making the transition easier for me!
I first met Allie when she sat down next to me at church. She was new too, but I was a little timid. She immediately turned to me and said "Hi! I'm Allie!" (hey Allie, if your reading this, don't think I'm creepy that I still remember this..). I quickly learned that she just moved here as well, and her husband was also starting school. Allie was the friendliest person I had met in Arizona so far. We immediately "hit it off", for lack of better words. And even though we may not talk everyday, I feel like we've known each other forever. From our spur of the moment, late night shopping excursions to her teaching me about health foods, I love everything about her! It's also a bonus that she is so non-judgmental and let's me spill my deepest darkest secrets.
She is just as gorgeous inside as she is outside. Take a look for yourself.
