Bachelorette party thoughts....

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!!

  1. I'm excited for you. My daughter's wedding was so much fun. Special in so many ways. I too love 'her girls'. Thinking about how much they mean to her makes me a little teary eyed. I pray they are always a part of one another's lives. All the groomsmen from our wedding 30 years ago were at my daughter's wedding. Their wives are all college friends of ours too. I hope my girls can say the same at their someday children's wedding celebrations. Enjoy these next few months. Crazy fun, but also sometimes just crazy : )
