Old Friends

I'd like to dedicate this post to the girlfriends I've had for as long as is important. These are the girls who knew me before I knew me, and who stuck with me anyway. These are the girls who saw through my lies and facade of my youth and hung with me anyway. These are the girls who believed in me at my most unbelievable, and forgave me at my most unforgivable. These are the girls with whom, when we get together, no matter how long it's been since we've spoken, emailed or met, it seems as if no time has passed. These are the girls whose longstanding friendships have helped shape who I am today. And I love them anyway!

In May we got together again to celebrate a big day--our Jilly Bean got married. It was a beautiful ceremony, a fabulous celebration and a wonderful weekend all around. I can't even describe what a time I had and what a feeling it left with me. Thanks to the girls and Jill's family for embracing me and including me in on a weekend I won't forget. So here's to Carri, Jill, Jocelyn and Heather. You guys are the best!

Love, Maria


Time it was and what a time it was it was;
A time of innocence a time of confidences.
Long ago it must be, I have a photograph.
Preserve your memories;
They’re all that’s left you.

Wow, you are real serious about this blog stuff!

This is great stuff, I feel like I am keeping up to date with you even though we haven't talked in a while.

You look great in the photo. Heather hasn't changed since high school!

Hope all is well, take care.
