A few months ago I went to dinner with 3 of my oldest friends. Courtney - whom I've known since I was 9 months old and she was born. Emily who I don't remember when we met, but it seems like we've always been in each others lives. Our friendship blossomed around the 7th grade. And Angie, who I have known since 6th grade and spent all my middle and high school years running around with.
I cannot even begin to put into words how much fun we had. Courtney and I drove together and it amazes me how even though we haven't talked in months even a year sometimes we pick right back up as if we talked on the phone yesterday. I was in tears from laughing by the time we got to Angie's house.
We met Emily at the restaurant and we ate and laughed and talked for 3 hours. We closed down the place went outside and talked some more. I had told Mike it would be a late night, I don't think he realized I wouldn't walk in the door until nearly midnight. (It was a Tuesday for crying out loud). I don't get together with friends often anymore. Everyone gets busy with work, family, kids baseball games etc. But this was one of those nights I will remember forever.
I love the feeling of getting together with old friends who know you so well, even after all this time and space. I love the feeling nothing has changed no matter how long it has been since we last talked. I love talking about old friends from high school and Courtney pulls out her phone to her facebook page so we can all get a glimpse of so and so's life. I love laughing til it hurts and tears are flowing. I loved coming home that night and falling asleep with a smile on my face because these girls will be my friends for life. I love writing this post and remembering the night with yet another smile on my face - I love those girls!
