I’ve written about girl friends before on this blog; the specialness of those female friendships, whether they are long-time friends or new ones.
I spent this past weekend at a house in the woods with a group of ladies for my friend Leah’s bachelorette party. Spending time with 3 of my closest friends whom I’ve known since middle school was so wonderful. It had been about two years since we’d all been together, but whenever we are I am reminded of how much I love them and how much fun it is doing anything together. There were six other girls there– a couple I had met briefly, but most I didn’t know at all– and it was such a blast. We laughed a lot and I felt so comfortable, present and happy.
I spend a lot of time alone these days. It can be hard to venture out of my studio apartment cave to socialize. This weekend reminded me how important friends are. I felt the deep connection with my old friends and the magic of meeting new people.
And a huge shout out to my BFF Shana (we met on the school bus 21 years ago) who just graduated from medical school!!! Good work Dr. Shosky!
And now here’s a comic about a recent day with Janet (an awesome lady I have known for over a year and a half now, who has quickly become a good friend and movie buddy):
