Being married is wonderful, and as of that one spring two years ago, my very best friend will always be a boy. But whoever said getting marrying meant losing all your friends had it wrong. In fact, I think it makes our marriage stronger that we have time apart and other people we enjoy spending it with. We spend our days in class or at work, lunching with friends, and being productive. We spend our evenings usually together, with the occasional late night study session on campus, fun girls evening out, or an all boys hot tubbing event with little clothing involved (funny story about that I really should share on here, maybe I’ll get Ben to do the honors).
I am so grateful for all the wonderful women in my life. There are those two up above that I’ve recently taken to spending a lot of time with (there is something to be said for having friends with the same hobbies – it makes it so much easier to gush to). There’s the girl I’m flying out to see in just a few weeks – who said thousands of miles could stop us? There’s also the wonderful girl who has a birthday this Saturday; Carly, you’re the best. And then there’s the girl who is flying in on Friday. Jen, I can’t believe it was four years ago we were spending our afternoons at volleyball practice and weekends on double dates. So much has changed, but some things never will 😉
So, here’s to all the amazing girl friends out there. We need each other. C.S. Lewis once said “Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art… It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.” I disagree. I don’t think I could survive without you guys.
