On Saturday I read a plaque that said "We'll always be friends... you know too much." I had to laugh.
Do you have any friends like that? That you tell everything to, even the things about you that are evil, and they love you anyway, and even find your quirks endearing?
I've been so lucky to have that these last eight and a half years in my two neighbors...
Shawna and Trina.
Who gets to live at the bottom of a cul-de-sac with two of their very best friends in the whole world?
And despite Shawna's coping mechanism of insisting we'll never speak to each other again, I know that's not the case. Because she simply knows too much. And I'm not letting her go.
Luckily, Trina also happens to be my sister-in-law, which is sort of like finding out there are really fairies, so there's nothing but gladness there that we'll always have each other. She's never getting rid of me. Ever.
On Thursday we went on one last glorious night out to see the premiere in our little town of the last 'Twilight' movie (yep). It was so fun to be together. We went out to our classic eatery, Texas Roadhouse, stood in line for a long time talking and laughing, and just having a marvelous time. I am so glad for friends. What a blessing in this life.
Aren't they beautiful?
