Remember in college when you’d see your best friends about 5 times a week? You’d meet on the campus mall, lunch, go to class together, then go to the same parties over the weekend.
Then in your 20’s you see your best friends on the weekends hanging out, bars, restaurants, clubs, all those things single 20 year old’s do.
Then life changes, you start getting married, having kids, and you can see each other once a month – if lucky, and depending on how far everyone now lives from one another.
Last weekend my gf’s and I headed to The Henry, one of my favorite spots for coffee, lunch and dinner! It gets tougher to get everyone together nowadays, so when most of us can make it, we make the most of it.
Whatever stage you are in – always enjoy it, because time constantly goes on, changing dynamics of everything. When I was single I would fly and visit my friends who started their families because I had the availability. So with this said, any time I can get with a girlfriend I jump at the chance because who knows when baby number 2, 3 or 4 comes along which would naturally mean it’s harder getting together. What I’m also saying is, if you have the time, and the funds, go spend time with your friends as much as you can!
This is when I joke with my girlfriends who are moms that I get them back in 20 years when all the kids are out of the house and we can go on cruising around the world.
Whatever life stage we’re in, I’m just happy to have the girlfriends I do by my side, and that making intentional time to be together, love one another, those are the girls that are good for the heart.
