Because I was thinking of you...

These are my girls.
Some of them are here, and some have recently moved on.
(I'm missing them.)
And I can honestly say, my life wouldn't be the same without any of them.
Like, I'd probably be a crazy person without them.
They've gotten me through the good, the bad, the day-to-day, the crazy, the best, and the I'm not sure I'm going to make it.
Really, I wouldn't be making it without them.
And let's face it, they just make life a lot more fun!

At some point it will be my turn to leave this place we call home.
And because of these girls, I'm more than sure I'll be leaving half my heart in Rochester, MN.
Maybe a more accurate description would be that little pieces of my heart are, and will be, taken all over this country.

For some reason which I don't fully understand but for which I am so grateful, I've been blessed through the different stages of my life with amazing friends. Because I promise you, I'm not half as awesome as they are.

But I've got to say, this time, these women are a standout.

And so, to my Rochester girls
former and current
I love you!

p.s. a few things you will probably notice about these pictures

- I'm not very photogenic
- my friends are all better looking than me
- I'm wearing the same outfit in 2 of them (yes they were different days)
- and Av is attached to me in every one.

I know.

You have been lucky! Friends that are willing to help you paint kitchen cupboards don't come along very often. I'm glad you've had "your girls".

I have always been envious of your huge group of loyal besties that you seem to find wherever you move. And not photogenic??? what the hell are you talking about?
p.s. shel and I just confessed to each other that sometimes (alright, lots of the times) we like to wear the same outfit all week long. so the fact that you are wearing the same outfit in two of these pictures??? don't even worry about it!
miss you tons!!! hurry up and get here, thanksgiving!

Shellie said...

I'm crying too. Miss you more than you even know!

Are you kidding? You look gorgeous in every one and I LOVE that Avery is always with you, just soak up that baby time because you're right, she's just perfect and it looks like you have amazing wonderful friends too, so glad things are going so well, but so sorry that in this life we lead people move out every year, about the same time!
