Four years, three weddings, two babies. To be exact.
Once attached at the hip, the five of us enjoyed life and singleness to the fullest. When I think of my 20's, I think of the Fab Five. My group of four girlfriends (plus me) that filled my weekends with fun and filled my love tankwith words of affirmation.
The last time Brittany and I had dinner (in July to celebrate her April birthday) I said I would try to coordinate a day to get everyone together. Imagine my surprise when it actually worked! I planned 5 weeks in advance and I got to see all four of their lovely faces in one room at one time! - A miracle. (I am actually still in shock that it worked out!)
My, how things have changed.
In the last four years we have tried our best to stay connected, even if it meant we didn't get to lay eyes on one another.
Alisha always reads my blog and posts the sweetest words of encouragement.
Brittany always showers me with thoughtful gifts (her love language) and quarterly dinner dates.
Leah always keeps my secrets and let's me know she is thinking of me even if we don't get to talk often.
Shauna always listens to my venting and follows up with my prayer requests long after I asked her to lift me up.
Needless to say, the sweet babies stole the show and were the main topic of conversation. - I mean, they babble, drool and giggle when you play peek-a-boo. Adorable. We played "pass the baby" a lot.
It was so wonderful to catch up with my friends and to have time with "the girls" like we used to - and we all love the additional two little ladies in our group.
