I've known these girls for years: my maid of honor since we were in kindergarten, the other bride-to-be, Vance, I've known since 3rd grade, Lois and Ace also since grade school, and the rest of them I became friends with during high school. A small misunderstanding almost made me miss the bridal shower our circle of friends set up. But after a phone call, a quick change, and a polite plea for my mom to drive me, I made it just in time (I was an hour late—I honestly thought we were doing it the following day).
Last Saturday, I caught up my favorite girls in the world over a high-carb dinner (aww yeah), wine, and blueberry cheesecake. College made it difficult for us to get together but I'm really, really grateful that we'll be complete at the wedding.
Yep, I think I'll keep them. <3 Photos stolen from my girlfriends' Facebook pages, haha.
