Old Friends

22 Feb

This past weekend, I got together with three of my best girlfriends on the planet. We met in college, back when we all lived in Charleston (and swore we would never leave) and when sorority/fraternity mixers and lazy beach days were our big priorities.

Today, we all live in different cities/states, and all of us being in the same place at the same time is quite a challenge. But on this particular Saturday, we were. And, it was just as I remember it being. We shopped, we laughed, we ate, we drank, we watched movies together (including our favorite, Almost Famous), we got ready together and we even slept two-to-a-bed like the old days.

Driving home on Sunday I realized how far we have all come. We’ve had our ups and downs (collectively and individually). We’ve accomplished things and failed at things. We’ve supported each other – even when it didn’t always seem like we did. We’ve gone from tan lines and fake IDs to laugh lines and not getting ID’ed. Those women…well, I love them more than they know.

“Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back.”

-Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and The City
