Good friends are always surprising gifts, aren’t they?

My friend Aru and I have now known each other for two years. We have talked about simple living, our love of mountains, traveling in India, our creative husbands who like to do projects, and our energetic sons. We have walked barefoot on the roof at sunset, broke the fast together on the veranda, and stirred eachother’s cooking. Every conversation we start, there are common interests and questions, whether about plants, faith, pottery, and yoga. Good times.
