The memories are fuzzy, but I’m pretty sure I used to know how to party. There are memories of “bar shirts’ and cheap draft beer. Eating street meat, strutting it four inch heels, laughing until my sides hurt and staying up until the early morning hours with “my girls”. Flirting with boys…well one boy mostly. Dancing. Pub crawls. Learning about tequila, the hard way. Loving
almost every second of it.
way over 4o and the married Mama of two of my own girls, my idea of a good party has changed. I still love “my girls” but we have mellowed, and the partying is not quite what it used to be! Err but I still love to rock the shoes!
My group of girls has grown and changed too. There are my girls from University, that I don’t see nearly often enough. There are my couple of beloved High School girls who will forever be my rocks, and there are my new girls that I have been blessed to make and meet along the way. I even have Blogging Girls, that make me feel so blessed! (and I know I can post pictures of them without getting in trouble) Here are just a few!!
Despite having all these incredible woman in my lives, we just don’t party like those young things did, and I’m okay with that. A good party for me,might include any of those incredible women and any of these wild and crazy times;
Coffee at Starbucks and a good old fashioned chat.
A glass of wine with more than a few apps, laughter on the side.
Double date with Hubby’s.
A day on the dock, or around the pool with our kids and nothing to do but to soak up the sun.
A night at the movies! Popcorn a must. Husbands optional.
An amazing evening at a friends house, potluck dinner, coolers full of drinks, hearts full of love and home by midnight? Perfection.
Yup, my idea of the perfect way to party may have changed, but I’m more grateful than ever for my girls. Life gets busy, time with the girls harder to carve out, and I miss all of you more then you know.
Know that you are missed, and you are loved. Let’s get wild and crazy soon! xoxo
