A syncing of photos from the iPhone to the Air reminded me I had a story I wanted to post. Over Christmas holiday, I was reunited with my five close girlfriends from high school. Most of them attend our annual girl’s trip. We had a 2-hour time span where our schedules would overlap and we could spend some time connecting. It was decided, a midweek brunch at The Kenwood. Fresh snow had fallen and we stomped our way into this beautifully-decorated dining spot.
Plaid wall paper, horse hooks for your coat and mismatched framed art with vintage lamps.
In true Minnesotan form, we wore “your-car-might-get-stuck-in-the-snow-and-you-have-to-walk” boots of all kinds. A staple in any Midwestern girl’s wardrobe.
The great part about this group is, we can be literally ANYWHERE and fully appreciate the time we spend together. We will laugh on the side of the street in Vancouver. Bundle up in white bathrobes and be morally supportive of the tallest girl singing “Bohemian Rhapsody” to a half-empty room on a cruise ship. Enjoy a day drinking shopping spree in downtown Chicago. We can be anywhere, at any time, and enjoy every moment of it.
In true fashion, brunch was spectacular. We dined on a handful of delicious plates, I had an Omelette Florentine and we all toasted to friendship and forward momentum.
And what happens after we dine + cheers? We laugh and pass around Carla’s beautiful wedding ring (does AJ know this is a tradition?) as we talk about the future and everything we are looking forward to.
These ladies make me whole again. Cheers to a new year and another year of being blessed with these girlfriends.
Carla (Florida), Molls (Minn), Meg (Colorado), Rach (Georgia), Kates (Arizona), and me
So incredibly happy,
