Tonight I went to a baby shower for my friend Aubrey. Very fun. Her baby theme is pirates. Seriously, does it get any cooler than that? Arrrrr! It was great to see a bunch of girls I rarely see. I really do know so many marvelous people.
On our way out to our cars, a few of us proceeded to--in true female fashion--stand around chatting. And we talked. And laughed. And told stories. And laughed some more. In 45-degree weather. That may not sound very cold to some of you cold-climate dwellers, but we stood there talking for over an hour. My fingers are frozen. My toes are frozen. In fact, even my inner ears hurt (not good). But it was so worth it.
I love my girl friends.
This year I will be brave. This year I will pick up the phone and call my friends to hang out. This year I will be the one to initiate getting together. This year I will not take my friends for granted. Enough wishing I hung out with them more. This year I will hang out with them more.
