Non-stop laughter, giggling, bantering over a few glasses of Margaritas with chips, guac and salsa was the perfect night out with my four girlfriends – all married with children, except me.
We have a tradition of going around the table to give our updates about life, starting with Michelle who has the most children (and older children than my other girlfriend’s kids), then Lauren, followed by Cathy, and Christine is second to last. I normally give my “report” at the end – my update is short and sweet. No kids’ stories to tell- just me and Chad (and our business, YoursTrulyWeddingAlbums.com).
After our “updates”, I surprised my girlfriends with Pandora single leather bracelet with two charms. The first charm was “Loyalty” and the other is their personal zodiac sign. They were touched by the gesture and couldn’t thank me enough. We all wore the bracelets and enjoyed the rest of the night.
On my way home, I couldn’t help but think of how long we’ve known each other. They’ve been a part of my life for 15 years! We’ve grown up together, got engaged, married, supported each other’s job changes, congratulated the birth of children, etc. There were many special moments shared.
I’m so lucky to have them – they are the true meaning of friendship and loyalty. I couldn’t wish for a better set of girlfriends.
