“That’s who you really like. The people you can think out loud in front of.”
I turned 25 yesterday and catching up on old friends makes me realize how time flies and how everything is so different from what it used to be. And it’s a sad kind of happy that I’m at this stage of my life. Those were fun times and good times but I don’t miss them any longer. I guess I’m growing up.
I’m thankful for my boyfriend who painstakingly surprised me again w/ what he said was going to be an annual tradition the day before my birthday.
And then surprised me again by coordinating friends who gave me a birthday surprise.
And then surprised me yet again on my birthday when I knew he had work.
And then watched me eat my weight in Korean barbecue.
I’m thankful to friends who showed up scaring the beejeezus out of me.
And another who spent the afternoon with me.
And to more than a hundred birthday messages of awesomeness. And birthday likes on my blog.
And to just generally everything.
This is in honor of Friday nights with girlfriends in grown-up classy Spanish wine bars.
A bottle of wine split between two good friends.
A whole lot of gossip talk and issues.
Add another bottle of wine.
And raunchier talk (mostly yours).
Followed by stumbling home (me) and heading for bottomless margaritas (my girlfriend).
And a hell of a wine hangover the next day, curled up into a ball and comfort-texting my boyfriend.
In other words… fun.
I love my friends!
