I'm the type of person who really needs friends. I mean, I think I'd be in a state of depression if I didn't have enough friends around. Whenever I move to a new place, the hardest thing for me isn't packing my house, or unpacking it, or deep cleaning, or the stress of the new job/school etc. It's that I'm super lonely and just plain out of whack, until I get friends.
So even though I have moved away from this group of girls, I'm still so happy that I get to see them on a somewhat regular basis. Last weekend, one of these girls (Kendra) who moved away a year or two ago, was traveling through and had a few hours to spare. We gathered together for a quick breakfast at Colleen's house, where we talked and laughed and discussed everything from babies to gardens to school choices to insurance. It was a great morning. I'm so glad for friends!
