Good Girl Friends

Whether we're big girls or little girls...a girl has to have some good friends!


You know how there are girls out there who say they just can't be friends with girls...I don't trust those girls. I'm a big believer in having a solid group of girlfriends...I always have been. When I got married my wedding party was a collection of my closest friends from different periods of my life...Kate and I had been friends since we were in the 3rd grade & played countless hours of Barbies growing up together, Mandy and I were high school friends and were often told we could be sisters, Amanda and I were in the same orientation group at Camp War Eagle and then found each other in the same math class on our first day of class our freshman year at Auburn, Candi and I lived together at Auburn for 2 years and I kinda felt like an adopted member of her family, Erin and I were roommates after college and I don't know what I would have done without Andrea during grad school...or even now for that matter! My point is, all these girls knew who each other were, but none of them were really very good friends with each other...the only thing they shared was that they were all special friends to me. I love how at each point in my life God has placed some of the most fabulous girls in my life just when I need them!

Now I'm at a point in my life where most everything I do revolves in some way around my children...and once more God has faithfully put some good girlfriends in my life to share these days with...


I'm so lucky to have these girls and their families in my life. We love seeing each other, our hubbies get along and our kids get along...PERFECT! This is the last picture from our Charleston trip and I want these two ladies to know just how much fun I had spending the weekend with them. On Sunday morning Sally and I were eating breakfast when a group of 3 gray haired ladies stopped in the lobby of our hotel to say their goodbyes to each other. They had clearly just finished a girls weekend and I told Sally I hoped that would be our group one day...but lets drive to Charleston by car when we're their age and not by boat...unless this is the boat that's getting us there.

I second Sally's comment! You two are such blessings to me!
