Feeling a little pressure from the girls to 'get back on the blogging trail'. I'm happy to do so, but must begin with the sad update that the New Year's weight loss goal was not only not reached but I may have gained a little weight these past few weeks. Bummer. Oh, well, there are always bigger pants to buy...
I made a trip back "home" this past weekend to do a bit of scrap booking and hanging out with my old posse of girlfriends (second photo). I really miss these gals and we have an awesome time together. I was trying to figure out on the way back to Jax whether or not I was sad that I didn't live in Tally anymore when I realized that with true friends you just pick right up where you left off. Physical proximity does not really factor in to the friendship. I talk to at least one of these gals every single day on the phone even though we are now talking long distance. That thought made me smile as I turned off the interstate and mozied on down to my "new" home.
The first photo is of a couple of the new friends that I have made since the move. Love these girls, too. It has been fun making new friends and doing different things with different people. These two gals live right down the street from me and I see them or at the very least talk to them every day. It makes for a fast friendship. So, in some ways, physical proximity can be a real bonus when you are the "newbie" and trying to establish relationships.
New friends, old friends. Grateful for them all...each and every one.
