High School Girlfriends

Well, if my glasses would have not been broken, it would have been a more comical picture. No, the fuzzy photo will do for comic relief.
From left to right: Holly, Mandy, and then myself. I am the BIG pregnant one.
These girlfriends have been there for me since high school. Yes, I know, that means for more than 13 years now. I love these girls! We have all been through our FAIR share of events. The other interesting fact is that we are pretty different from each other. In the case where opposites are supposed to attract with your spouses, I would have to say it applies to my dearest friends and not to my spouse. You see, Holly never wants to have biological children, Mandy wants them later in life, and I couldn't wait to get started on my four. That is just one example.
Another great thing about these girls is that we NEVER have competed for anything. We all had different ideas of what our dream guy should look like.
Case in point-the photo or our men. They didn't know each other before meeting their future bride to be, however they totally understand the need for us to get together and they now get along great! Even though we don't "hang" in the same crowd now that we are adults, we sure do like getting together and laughing out loud. Photo of guys from left to right: David (other half of Mandy), Chris (my better half), and Derek (our war hero and Holly's other half).
To us, true friendship is when you can pick up where you left off without explaining why you didn't call sooner. We have NEVER been upset at each other for not calling on a birthday or shoot even sending the gift on time. I love that when we do call we are nothing but happy to hear the other ones voice. That is a great friend. Never judging the other because through all the years so much has happened that we are happy just to have the other ones friendship without strings. I love you guys!
P.S. Kaci, you too! If you and Clay could have been here, we would have welcomed you with open arms.
