Every girl needs girlfriends. Some come into your life for a while, for a reason, and then go.
Others stay in your life forever.
Those are the ones that really know you. the good, the bad and the ugly. They have been through thick and thin with you. They love you unconditionally. You can have fights and fall outs, but in the end you come back together. There is an unbreakable bond.
You share so many moments together, some feel like a million years ago and others you'll never forget. You lean on each other when there is a crisis, you feel true happiness when something good happens. These are the girls that you call first with any news or gossip.
Life doesn't allow us to see each other as much as we would like, but we truly make the effort when we can. We have a birthday tradition that is now 10 years strong. I couldn't imagine not spending my birthday without these girls.
We spend time together in the summer, lazing on the beach, catching up while our kids play. Reminiscing about when they were babies. We have girls nights out when we can - laughing about how old we've become because we cant stay out past 10.
