I think I am sitting here at the kitchen table this morning delaying all the stuff I need to get up and start doing. The holidays are over and I need to get the house back to ordinary life. I need to put away Christmas decorations, and clean, do laundry, and in general - put life back into a routine.
I'm looking forward to a few days of "normal" again. BUT... it was a wonderful end of the year 2014, and a beginning of a new one.
It was an especially fun weekend that just ended because I got to spend it with my daughters and some of their girlfriends during my Lauren's bachelorette Party weekend in Charleston. I want to thank them all for allowing me to be a part of it! I'm not really sure if a mom usually takes part in bachelorette gatherings, but I appreciate that I was made to feel a part of it, and to celebrate with the bride-to-be and her friends.
And, let me say, what wonderful friends they are! Caring and fun - and girls with their heads in the right place! I really enjoy being around them. All are different, yes, but all are thoughtful, and kind. All can laugh at a good joke. All care for my daughter and have been a big part of her life so far. They traveled by car and plane to spend time together. These are friends that will be life-long buddies and I think my daughter is very lucky to have such a great core group.
I look forward to seeing them all at the wedding in a few months. I can't wait to see them all dressed up for it! They will be so pretty! More fun times ahead!
Ok now... I need to step away from the computer. It's time for me to get back to real life here at home.
But, girls, thanks for the weekend!!
