Girls, Girls, Girls

One of my favorite stories is how I became friends with Linsday (the other girl in the crazy plaid). It all started my freshman year in high school with the fact that I was taking German because all of the cute soccer players were in the class (pathetic, right?). She was dating one of those cute soccer players (former NFL player David Akers) who was in my German class (the German teacher was the boys varsity coach). Are you still with me? Anyhoo, I went to the bathroom and she happened to be trying to get David's attention to give him a note (do you think kids even pass notes anymore?). We started chatting and laughing about the situation and the rest is really history...and I mean a lot. of. history. Ann and Kristen (the other hotties in the picture) basically came into my life because of Lindsay and I could not be more thankful. We each have had our ups and downs, we each have beautiful children, and we each have a deep and loyal love for each other that I hold so dear to my heart.

we went to the Winter Park Farmers Market

this is my crew

we stayed in our PJs and learned that Ann sleeps in a tennis skirt
(much easier to take her son to the bus stop in the morning:)
These girlfriends have been with me since I was 14 years old. They came to visit me a few weekends ago and it was just the therapy that I needed. We grilled burgers, drank some wine, and honestly did not shut up the entire time. There is just something about girlfriends. Especially girlfriends that have seen you at your worst and your best. These three....they make it easy. I think our friendship has survived over the years because we do not hold any judgement, we are able to laugh (a lot), and we really love each other. Like really.

I will save the sappy talk, but the bottom line is that I could not have asked for a better weekend with dear friends that I hold so close to my heart.
