Weekend with the Girls

These are the friends I have known the longest ...

... and what better way to spend a cold, autumn weekend than with a group of people who have known you since forever - a group of old friends that you admire and enjoy. Last weekend they converged from Chicago, Oklahoma, Overland Park, and Olathe and gathered at the M&A B&B (my apartment) in downtown Kansas City and together we began celebrating our 30th birthdays. Turning 30 means that we have known each other for a long time - 15 years at least. It's hard to believe it's been that long. We were quite different back then and are quite different now but we're still the same people somehow and a remarkable bond has ensured that we still have a wonderful time together every time we converge. I am already looking forward to 30th birthday celebration part 2 next year, or any other opportunity to enjoy the company of my dearest, oldest friends.
