But recently, once a year is all we get.
Naomi and Matt made a special trip up to Brisbane so we could hang out together for the day.
We finally got to meet their joyful little one and watch their good parenting skills in action.
And we got some much needed time to chat and catch up with this precious family whose lives have intertwined with ours.
It was a day of celebrating God's faithfulness in our marriages,
of multiple ages and stages coming together and sharing stories and experiences,
of making more memories together,
and laughing and crying and loving and being thankful for every moment together.
