One of my closest and dearest friends, Stephanie Paige, is coming to visit. She arrives tomorrow and I CAN'T WAIT!!! :) I've been talking about her visit non-stop for a few days now. There's something about having a girlfriend around who just "gets you". No explanation required. They know you inside and out. Even silence is comfortable. While I have a few girlfriends like that here, I don't see them nearly enough, and even when I do it's, well, there's men around and it's not the same. I miss my girlfriends. I miss lunches and tea, I miss pedicures, manicures, giggling and laughing. Remember slumber parties? Maybe when I turn 30 I'll get a hotel room and just have a big slumber party, who knows...I miss being feminine and girly. Real life takes too much of a toll.
So I'm hoping with her visit that I can slip into my girly yet mature side, even if only for a few days. We have one fun thing planned - wine country up in SLO with Cindy on Saturday - which I'm very much looking forward to.
