Let me introduce you to 12 of my best girl friends...




These are my girls! My posse. My therapists. My support system. My child development specialists who always have just the right advice. These girls make me laugh and a few times we have cried together. They have the best advice for anything from vacation ideas to potty training to ideas for a calling to great recipes. We dine together. We encourage each other. Oh yeah...and every once in awhile we talk about a book :O) We have been in the same book club for...i dunno...I guess 13 years or so. Atleast for me. That is when I joined them-thirteen years ago. I can't believe how much time flies. We have been through SO much together. When we started we were all getting married and having babies. Now we are sharing ideas on how to parent our teenagers. Two of our group are moving away and we will miss you dearly, Natalie and Jackie. I get tears in my eyes just typing this. We have such a great bond. Girls
I love you and appreciate your friendship. I feel so blessed to have you in my life. Thanks for the memories. See you next month!

That is AWESOME that you have had the same "club" for 13 years! I recognize only 2 people in that picture:) What a cool thing!

OK, I just realized that I said 12 friends and there are only 11 friends in the picture but one was in Hawaii. Silly me.

Okay, that is SO cool that you have had the same "group" for so long! We have moved so often that most contact with friends have been via email and phone...And while we still haven't quite opened up here in Frisco, we are working on it (I'm a little, um, it takes me a while to open up to others). But this is finally our home...finally a place where we can establish our roots and find true life-long friends. Hopefully we can be as lucky as you have been! :)

Oh, BTW, those ladies are so lucky to have YOU in their lives. Don't you ever forget it!

I am SO inspired by all of the athletes. I love the olympics!

Great ideas for the pictures. That would have never crossed my mind. Thanks. Now I just need to get a picture of Isaac painting!
