Our January "gathering of the girls" was alot of fun.... lots of laughs which was well needed after the seemingly hectic holiday season we all had. I thought I'd share a few photos of some of the fun!
At our December gathering, one of the girls started a new tradition of "The Friendship Ball". It's a beautiful silver ball, with a lovely poem about friendship inside. She also put inside a special gift for the girl she chose to give it to - that night it was our hostess. It's a lovely tradition to start, and so thoughtful. At this last party - I was the lucky recipient! And inside the ball was a note stating that I was to wear a cherished family heirloom: This fun, wintery circa 1984 sweater! Woohoo! Dont you love the snowmen? I totally look straight out junior high school! Love it.
I was absolutely the most stylin' chick there.
Well, until a sweater was presented to our girl B - who looks smokin' in her blue Christmas get up!
(PS: The sweater was truly just for funsies - I received a beautiful pair of pinkish/purplish rhinestone earings as my friendship gift. They're beautiful - I love them!)
Here is our "Hostess with the Most-ess", along with my friend Miss Anonymous - who was the gift giver of the friendship ball this month - and who is always the best practical joker!
Who are our girlfriends? They are our sisters....They are the aunts to our children...They are our family that we choose for ourselves. You share secrets - support each other's dreams....cheer each other on when needed....they're who you can be honest and truthful to - even when it's something we don't want to hear, but need to know.
Sometimes, there's nothing better than a cup of coffee (or in our case frequently, a cold beer!) and a girlfriend to get you through the day!
