Then, in college, we all went off doing our own thing, though thanks to the wonders of technology, we still talk to this day. But there was no void of amazing friends in college. I went to a local community college for two years because it was free (yay, scholarships!) and I didn't really know what I wanted to do with my life. I didn't know at the time how amazing those two years would be. We created a lot of memories in a very short time. Some of those women were in my life just for that season, but others have remained to inspire me again and again over the years.
Meeting Crys and Sheena truly altered the entirety of my twenties. We sang together from basically when I was 18 years old until I was nearly 30. That's a lot of growing up. We've seen each other through some things, to say the least. They are actual family now (sisters-in-law, to be exact), but continuing to have them in my life, even if it's from the mystical land of Ohio, is an incredible blessing. They continue to be big sisters to me, even though we aren't singing together every week.
And then, there are these broads...
We're those girls. You know, the ones in the restaurant being entirely too loud and having a little too much fun. While the six of us are rarely together all at once (which might be best for society as a whole), we are frequently each other's non-judgmental sounding boards. Every girl needs a group of people who you know will be wholly honest with you and won't hold back when you need to have some sense talked into you. These are those women in my life right now. And I couldn't love them more for everything they are.
Can't wait to hear about everyone else's friends! Even though I haven't gotten a chance to leave comments, I am reading everything! I hope to get caught up with some of that later today. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
