It wasn't two weeks after I first started dating Adam that I impulsively took a detour on my trip home from visiting a friend in Seattle to see Adam while he was visiting friends in Denver. I remember how nervous I was to see him again as well as meet his best friends whom he had talked about quite a bit. We would be staying with his friends Jill and Nick. From the moment Adam and Jill picked me up at the airport I let go of all that nervousness. Jill asked all the questions a good friend would but was also very kind and welcoming towards me. At their house I met his best friend Andrea and Jill's husband Nick. Both couldn't have been nicer and even though I didn't learn their beloved euchre that night they still made it so much easier for me.
This past weekend we hosted a baby shower for Jill and Nick as they are expecting their first child this summer. I was so happy to be doing this as I will always remember the way they welcomed me into their home after knowing Adam only two weeks. They have become two of my close friends over these last five years and I feel so lucky to not only be included into their little IU group of friends but to have them in my life period. They will make wonderful parents and I couldn't be happier for them.
