Oh, Man! Meet my beautiful friend Amy. This woman was the very first friend I made in my Portland neighborhood, almost a decade ago. We are the same age and come from the same hometown, though we didn’t know each other in our growing up years. Upon meeting in PDX, there was just a “click” and a familiarity that bonded us, and through the years she has been a running partner, a happy hour companion, and a listening ear. Amy is one of the smartest people I know, and also one of the kindest. I am so thrilled for her and her husband, Rodrigo, to welcome a baby girl.
