I know I mentioned it yesterday, but I got to spend a LOT of time with those I love most over the weekend. Literally every day, we spent it with our best friends or family (or both), and I can't explain the happiness that my heart felt. My girl Lyndsie, who resides in TN, was in town and it was so fun seeing her. We got to talk about life, our issues, and just enjoy being weird together. Sunday morning though, I got to take some quick, fun family pictures for their Christmas card and can we talk about their precious dog!?!? Friends, say hello to Casper....
Lyndsie's mom, Lori, always buys goofy props for the back side of their Christmas card photo and she never fails to crack me up with them. Lyndsie's Dad's sweater literally said "Meowy Christmas".... they are the best.
It just got me thinking how thankful I am for the few GOOD friendships I have. Those few girls who carve out time in their crazy schedules to meet up for coffee (or preferably, hot cider), or a quick phone call just to say hello for no other reason than just that. I will be forever grateful that I have a few great friends like that. I've said it before, but I don't have a "big group" of friends I hang out with, just a few close friends that I've met in different stages of life, and I love that they will always be there. Their friendships aren't something I'll take for granted.
One of those girlfriends of mine, Angie, lives kinda far away, and it sucks that I feel so apart from her right now (she's engaged!!), but I'm so so thankful that this Friday, Caleb and I get to see her and her fiancé, Tyler. Their wedding is on New Years Eve and we absolutely can't wait to be a part of it!! Last night we booked our hotel, for a surprisingly cheap rate for 2 nights, my bridesmaid dress is getting altered tonight and I can't wait for it to fit just right, and I'm on the hunt for a pair of plain black matte heels. I'm really excited for the last week of this year...Christmas and an amazing friend getting hitched?! Woohoo! For just those couple nights, me and a few friends will all be reunited and I can't wait for that hot happen.
In other news, I'm hoping to order our Christmas cards tonight. Anyone else being a procrastinator like me? ;)
