The Girls


My old buddies Heidi Draper, Jen Hill, Maci Sorensen, and Ali Nickle flew out to VA to visit me and Marie. WE ARE HAVING SO MUCH FUN!!! I can't believe it. Marie's husband Dave asked us if it's weird to all be together after so long, and I had to say no. That's the thing about great friendships, even after 7 years apart it just feels like old times once we're together again. We laugh and joke about how we ever became friends. Everyone was pretty offended when I said "It was a small town, we had limited options." I don't really mean that. But to an extent I do think it's a bit true. We're not a lot a like. But what really happened was, we had a huge group of friends in middle and high school, and then a bunch of those girls got boyfriends, and we were kind of the leftovers. And I will be forever grateful for that. These girls are the BEST.

Dearest Leftover,
I am so excited you are all having so much fun. I love the picture. I hope there will be more coming. I can't wait to hear all about it.
Wish I were there to. We could drag Main and do a fire drill at our one red light!
Love, Pa

Oops!
Just re-read my comment. If I were THERE, we obviously couldn't drag main and do a fire drill at our ONE red light! You'd better not try any of those small town tricks in the big CITY!
