Am off for a girly weekend with some of my high school friends. Women I’ve known since I was 12 years old.
We’ve seen each other through puberty and boyfriends and exams and moving away from home. Through university and and breakups and weddings and jobs and travels and children. Through many, many things in the time that’s passed since we met (which is more year’s than I care to think about sometimes).
Some years we only manage to get together (all of us, that is) once. Others, like this one, a few more times. But it doesn’t seem to matter how long it is in between, we always pick up where we left out and even though the five of us are older and wiser, at the core there are still those twelve year old girls, giggly and having a good time with the people we love.
And I think that’s pretty cool.
So an extra song for today, one that’s slightly corny but apt for my oldest friends!
