Forever Friends

Friendships come in all different shapes and sizes. High school friends. College friends. Work friends. Neighborhood friends. You talk to some friends often and others not so much. But there are a few friends that remain close even when you go months without talking and even years without a visit. When you see each other, everything just picks up where it left off. I call these...forever friends. I am lucky that I have that type of relationship with three of my girlfriends from college.


Even though we live sprinkled throughout California - LA, SF, Sac and SLO, we get together as much as possible. One of those get-togethers was this weekend. We met in Avila Beach at G's house for a fun-filled, beautiful, and sunny weekend.


After spending hours catching up on each others' lives, we played and explored on the central coast. Shopping. Dining. Mani/Pedis. Beach. Wine tasting. Amazing girl time!

Luckily, we also got to spend some time with G's gorgeous kids and hubby.

I can't believe it's been 15 years since I met and became friends with these girls. We've been together through break-ups, weddings, graduate degrees, career changes, babies, step kids, infertility, miscarriages and much more. I am so grateful to have these lovely ladies in my life to celebrate the good times and support each other through the bad times. Forever friends are priceless!

Amen! It's invaluable to have these kinds of people in your life. So many people come and go, but true friendship withstands a lot.

Looks like you had a great time. Forever friends are wonderful to have especially when you live close enough to them to enjoy them.
