oh look....

This is Jaclyn (and me). No, we are not sisters, nor related in any way and have not known each other for very long, but we are at home with each other even though we grew up half a world away. We can laugh and cry and get silly and cook and clean and paint and make mistakes in each other's presence and occasionally dress the same by coincidence and all of it only makes our friendship sweeter.

Jaclyn is a miracle. She is the only child her mother managed to carry to full term, and perhaps that has something to do with her determination and commitment. She is not a dabbler. She is not indecisive. She is willing to try anything that rings true and is a willing servant, living with conviction and confidence and a sense of fun. She is a woman of her word and has no falseness or pretence about her. She does not run from a challenge and never complains about hardship. She is real and I really like her.

Here we are pretending to be models and pointing uber excitedly at nothing whatsoever but hey, it looks cool! Photo credit to Greg.
