|That pesky bun|
So many shared moments, so many inside jokes, so many little life idiosyncrasies in one shared memory bank… The two of you have been part of my life since I was 12 years old, that means this August, at the start of “another school year” you will have been my friends for twenty years (give or take a few days). B, we used to ride to school together every single day, my mom would bring me to your house where I would watch you and your sisters race through the house and get ready until it was time for us to walk to the bus, we sat and we would chat and gab and laugh. Instant friends and soul sisters for life. L, you and I rode the bus home together, it all started with a simple chat one day and it led to days racing to the vending machines to buy purple skittles and raspberry ice tea before we had to run to the bus to get home. We were cohorts in life and to this day, still are.

We caught our respective flights and headed to Austin. In a matter of moments the three of us were together again, laughing and hugging and excitedly jabbering. We arrived at the hotel and checked in, ran up to our room to freshen up and join the MomCom forces for the reception (a secondary blog all about MomCom to follow). After an evening of inspiration the three of us enjoyed a good old fashioned “girls night” sharing stories, drinking drinks, snacking on food, shedding tears and laughing until we cried. The night lasted into the wee hours of morning. The next day we spent our time traveling, listening to music, catching up over burgers and milk shakes and spending quality time with B’s family. Another night filled with laughter and tears and wine and pizza and colorado bulldogs.

This past weekend was soul filling and a blessing beyond blessings. To meet my favorite mom blogger/author, with my dear friends and spend a weekend sharing our lives… Life is good. Life is blessed.
** I left all photos from the 90’s off of here for two reasons; 1. I have yet to digitally download all of them & 2. To save us from our awkward years. xoxo **
