Old Friends...

The moment I stepped out of my door onto the stoop, I dropped all my motherly ways behind me. Last night was a Girls Night.

Veggie tray in hand I made my way to the party and enjoyed every last minute of womanly ways. We ate, we hugged, we laughed and we ate some more. It was true bliss for a girl that had only been out once since the conception of the latest bun in the oven.

It's been 9 years since we used to see each other daily, walking the halls of high school. Last night sitting in the living room, I had a moment ....

It was impossible to me that sitting there together, we were discussing labour stories and husbands, careers and life changes.

We somehow grew up.

Things have changed, some have moved far, far away, and others are right around the corner...but it never fails that when we meet up on these special evenings...it feels as though time has paused and allowed us the favour of our youth.

As friends get older and life gets more real, I more and more appreciate the girls that knew my carefree days, those days of finding ourselves and finding each other....and darn, I'm so glad we did.

Thanks for the giggles girls, let's do it again real soon.

I couldn't wait to get home tonight and check your blog as I knew you would have something to say about last night at JL's. I thought of you all, and it made me sad to read your blog that I missed it. I love those get togethers. I do agree with you that our high school friends seem to be the strongest in my heart as well. I am going to have to give you a call soon, so we can actually catch up and hear each others voice. We are going up to the cottage next week, so sometime after that. Miss you and think of you often...

Thanks for a great night, too! I think it's pretty amazing that we can just slide right back in to things... even though I am so horrendous at keeping in actual contact! I cherish those times we're able to get together, especially our Christmas party - and I'm glad we've been able to do it a little more often than once a year!

I LOVE girl's night out!! I'm glad you got to go to one, and enjoyed yourself.
So, did you get to eat? Or were you sick all night? :)
