feeling lucky

I'm feeling very lucky.  Similar to the feeling I would have if I hit the jackpot (but even better)!  I went to dinner with some of my best friends last night. These ladies have been my friends for over 13 years now.  As we ate dinner, I reflected on how far we've come together.  We've gone through boyfriends, college, marriage, jobs, homes and babies together.  We've experienced so many things together as friends.  I am so lucky to be friends with these women.  Talking to them, I realized that I HAD already hit the jackpot with these wonderful friends!  

We were all very lucky to have a special new friend join us last night.  Camille's friend, Tiffany, (who is now our friend) joined us for dinner.  It was a beautiful experience talking to her and listening to her.  My life is forever changed because of all these women.  I am the luckiest girl in the whole world to have such amazing friends. I am inspired and strengthened daily by the many friends I have who live near and far, blogging friends, neighbors, family, and the many people who surround me daily. I am one lucky girl to have so many incredible friends.  I have definitely hit the jackpot!

This was the after party.  We were having fun playing with the camera.  I wish Heidi & Mich were in these pictures too!

That night was so great! I loved that you guys just accepted me as is and made me feel so great. I feel so tall in that last picture and I NEVER have had the chance to do that! So Thanks!! :) Wished you all lived a little closer. I think Camille may get a tiny bit sick of me! :) Poor Camille! Britt, you are darling and so are all the other girls! Thanks for including me!

What a sweet post. It would be even sweeter if Natalie and I were in the picture HAHA! I miss all of you. There's not a memory I have of Jr. High or High School that doesn't have one of you in it. Good Times! I for sure would love to see all of you at Christmas.

I am feeling lucky that my daughter has such great friends; that she was welcomed to a new area when we moved as she was just going into high school! What a nice picture!
