I am not even sure where to begin this post. See, it all started in high school (gasp...almost 20 years ago.) I was lucky enough to meet this amazing group of girls. We became the best of friends and not much has changed in that department.
What has changed? Babies. We have kids now. In fact, we have EIGHT kids between the five us. They range from a year and a half to almost 16 years old! I'm not sure how this happened. I mean, I know how this happened, I just can't believe it. We're all grown up and raising our own little versions of ourselves.We've been through thick and thin this group. We've survived breakups and makeups. We've graduated and moved away and moved back and moved away. We've changed jobs and married the loves of our lives. We've bought cars and homes and cribs. We've helped each other through the loss of too many loved ones. We've seen each laugh and cry. We've made each other laugh and cry. We've seen each other blissfully happy and we've seen each other scared to death. We've shared advice on everything from undergarments to life changing decisions. (Not that undergarments aren't life changing!)
We live in Texas, Alabama, Georgia, and North Carolina but we are closer than close.
We are rarely in the same room together but when we are, it's like the old days. Not like the old days as in that is all we have to talk about. It's like the old days, because we talk and talk and talk and laugh. We ask about each other's families and catch on up all the drama of life.
I am often told how lucky I am to have this group of women and I can't agree more. They like me no matter what, these best friends of mine and I hope our children are just as lucky as we are! #BFF
