Never imagined

You remeber when you were in highschool and the age of 25 or 26 seemed so far away. You thought by that age you will everything finished you started, school was over, you were at a great job, married, KIDS. It is crazy how time flies and you don't get things accomplished you always thought you would, things don't always happen the way you planned them. Where is this going you ask? The last couple of years my friends and I have been through a lot, moving away starting careers, weddings and now babies. I guess I have just felt overwhelmed lately. There was always a small group of us that were like sisters in school.( there were even some boys thrown in the bundle that were like brothers) We spent more time with each other than we did our own families. They were our family as far as we knew. After graduation we made a bond that we would never grow apart.....and we really never did. We don't get to spend 8 hours a day together anymore, but we talk to each other sometimes everyday. When one of us comes into to town we always make time to eat out, have a couple drinks and start off right where we left off. I know I am lucky to have friends like this b/c I look at people around me who have lost the bond of their best friends. In the last two years we have been through 3 or more weddings and lots of different destinations. But no matter what life throws at us and how busy we get, we always make time for a phone call, email or dinner :) Maybe it is the movie "sistehood of the traveling pants" but I just got to thinking how lucky I am to have the same friends I have had since school . They are people who know me better than myself, are still the same friends I have today. Of course I have other friends that I cherish dearly, but its nice to still have the same bond with the same old friends.

I guess I was doing all this thinking because my best friend Hannah is getting ready to start a trend that we will all follow in some day. She is having the first baby of our group!! Of course this baby doesn't even know how lucky it is....So many Aunts(and uncles) that will love it. I just can't believe the stuff we talked about so long ago is happening today, marriage, careers, loves, babies.

I feel like Hannah having this baby is a new step in our "sisterhood" !! This will only bring us closer and to know that our kids will someday grow as friends. I can't wait for all of us to be gathered away this little boy and the bond it will bring.

Today I just wanted to give a shout out to all my know who you are...and tell you how lucky we are to still have that sister bond that we hold today. I believe that no matter where life takes us or how crazy thing will get we will always have the same friendship. Last time we were all together we made that promise to never let the times change us :) I am so grateful to share this sisterhood and thought I owed all my friends a piece of my blog to make people understand just how lucky we have it! I owe a big piece to Hannah too. I haven't been blogging as much as I should about her and now that she is a week away from having this amazing little boy I know it will only bring us closer!!! I can't wait to be waiting in the hallway of the hospital awaiting his arrival. So to all my sisterhood friends, lets carry on the tradition!!!

Too sweet lady, you have got me all misty eyed. We are just as lucky to have you. Ups and downs, highs and lows, we seem to always make it back to the good stuff--just loving each other for who we are.
