friends make the world go round

I don't know what I would do in my life without my amazing, beautiful friends. I have so many great friends, so different and lovely in their own ways. Through my church, I've become so close to a group of girls that I feel like I've known them forever. Each one of us is so unique and different that we never run out of things to talk about, or laugh about, or cry about. We decided to go on a girls getaway trip to Birch Bay a few weekends back. Despite getting hassled at the border for looking like five innocent girls trafficking drugs (really?!) the time away from the craziness of life was much needed. We drank tea, ate the most delicious home-cooked meals, and spent quality time with God. Since there was no TV or internet (which I thought was crazy... but was actually such a nice change), we decided to get crafty and make headbands! After burning myself with the hot glue gun a hundred times, I finally got the hang of twisting and wrapping the fabric. I loved how mine turned out, and I sported it today with my outfit! And, yes, I realize I have yet to wear a bright colour. I promise, next outfit you will be blown away by springtime hues! Enjoy your morning everyone, and tell your friends you love them today, just for me.
