Blog Challenge Day 8: A Picture of Your Friends

I'm fortunate to have many wonderful friends from different stages of my life (college, our pre-baby party days, being a stay-at-home mom), but I'll post a photo of these girls since we were just together a few weeks ago...

High school buddies (2011)

These are my dear girlfriends from high school. We get together every year for a weekend sleepover. We've been doing it since 2002, and it's always one of the highlights on my summer. There's something really awesome about spending time with people who have known you since you were a gawky, brace-faced teenager.

Our friendship just keeps getting deeper as we get older. And now we get to celebrate each other's exciting life events together (note Alyssa's cute pregnant belly above).

We all live relatively close (two in Wisconsin and three in Minnesota), but with families and careers and life in general, we only see each other a few times a year. We stay in touch via email (our message chains are generally hysterical), but what I love most about our friendship is that we get together and never miss a beat. It's like we hadn't been apart. I love them all so dearly.


  1. I want to do that with my good girl friends! What a fun weekend that would be!


Thanks for reading!
