You know how you feel after you've opened all the presents at Christmas and then you have to clean up and throw away the wrapping paper, tissue and bows? You know, it's that feeling of being lost and not sure what to look forward to next? It's like the time for what you were SO excited for FLEW by and now it's back to normal life. Ew. I can't think of many things worse than that exact feeling.
Why do I bring that up? Because the last few weeks were filled with so much awesomeness and girlfriendship (it's a word I just made up) time that I was so looking forward to and now it's gone, and I feel yucky. It's like the Monday-blues on steroids. Don't get me wrong, I love the people I am surrounded by daily and love my guy, but there's just something about spending quality times with friends that is absolutely priceless. If I were asked to name the top five things I am most thankful for, my friends would fall quite high on that list. I always wonder how on earth I've been so lucky to have such COOL, amazing people come into my life.
After all that quality time spent with my girls, I started to think about why girlfriends are the best. Here are a few reasons:
In addition to this, sometimes girls can be mean. Like, really mean. I think that if we all remember that time when we had a crappy day, then we can all cut each other a little slack, give each other the benefit of the doubt, and let our friends know that we've got each other's back.
Side note: I also cry after 90% of the haircuts I get. Anyone else? No? Okay.
I don't mean to brag, but If the saying is true that you're only as good as the company you keep then damn it, I'm the best! Life has given me such great, great company.
