The topic for today's Big Time Blogging Challenge is friendships.  

This has actually been a topic on my mind a lot this summer!  I have been blessed with many friends in my life.  Friends that have been there through thick and thin, who know the real me, who love me regardless of my flaws.  I was recently able to get together with a few of those girls.  We have been friends since the fourth grade!  That's almost 20 years!  Crazy!  Now that we are older our lives are very different.  We live in different places.  We are married, most of us with children.  We are in our careers and have started our own paths.  One thing that hasn't changed is our love for each other.  Every Christmas for the past 5 years we have made an effort to get together.  We order or make dinner, play games, let the kids play, and catch up.  It is one of my favorite times of the year.  We recently got together for a little catch up time this summer.  Here's a picture!  I can't wait to get together again soon!




  1. How cool that you are still friends with that group of girls! Sounds wonderful!

  2. Love it! It's so special to have those friends who have known you through it all and still choose to be your friend :)

  3. That is really something to cherish because it is so unique. Those friends that you have held onto this entire time are those true friends you need in your life. :)

  4. You always know you have a true friend when the time that's past doesn't even matter. It's great that you are all still close!
