Like We've Never Been Apart

Today Jay, Harri, Kobe and I went to the bike centre to catch up with my good friend Naomi, who is down from Queensland for a holiday. Naomi and I grew up together and we were bridesmaids in each others weddings. I was also at the birth of her daughter - Natalija. I couldn't stop looking at Natalija all day as I still remember her as a little girl, and she is now so grown up and such a beautiful girl. She seems like such a good girl and a great help to Naomi.

The last time Naomi and I saw each other was over 4 years ago, and we haven't spoken much since then, but everytime we see each other it is like we have never been apart, and we always just catch up where we left off. Since we last saw each other she had another boy - Toby and we had Kobe. The funniest thing is that both our surnames are now King! When she saw Kobe she just kept saying over and over again 'he is so beautiful, he is so beautiful!'.

Toby was a cutie, and Naomi made me laugh as she kept calling him 'the baby', but he was anything but! He is such a big boy running around.

The thing I love about Naomi is that she never changes. She LOVES to take photos! Naomi is the real paparazzi and although it's hard to believe - she takes more photos than I do!

She is an amazing Mum to her four beautiful kids and does such a great job with them all. They all look so different but you can still tell they are siblings. The two boys up the back are Catherine and Mal's boys - Will and Abraham.

The reason we got together today was for Chloe's 6th birthday. She is a beautiful little girl, with a really gentle nature.

Catherine had made her a cute 'Little Miss' cake, which she loved.

It was so nice to see her and meet her beautiful kids again, and see how much they had grown up. It's nice to know that even though we don't get to see each other very often or get to talk much, that things are always the same when we do finally get to catch up.


  1. What a fantastic cake! Someone who takes more photos than you Lisa - don't believe it!

  2. Yes Kylie, it's true about Naomi being the real Papparazzi. I remember the days when Naomi would bring her red camera around everywhere. Lucky she worked at a pharmacy so she could get her photos developed reguarly. I always think of Natalija as being a little girl still. She is looks so grown up now. I must be getting old!

  3. Oh my goodness, I haven't seen Naomi since YA days!! SO lovely to see some pictures of her and her family.
    Do you have an email address for her, would love to say hi!
    I have had fun catching up on your blog Lisa, looks like you guys are having a fun summer holiday!
    Camping in the back yard look great, and Kobe is growing up so fast, he's adorable!

  4. Naomi hasn't changed a bit. Wow that's amazing, and Natalija is so grown up. Wow, that's amazing.
    Can Kobe be getting any more cuter??
    Love Mum xxx

  5. Hi Bride. Naomi isn't very good on the net (or so she tells me) but Natalija said she has an email address that I am going to email Naomi on.
    It is natalijaking @ hotmail . com
    (delete spaces). They wont be back till later next week.

  6. Thanks for that, i'll send her an email and see what happens!
