last year, I went on this trip, that some of yall thought I was crazy for going on, because I had never "met" any of the girls in person before. They were just "blog friends".
Well last year, I went...and came away with a deep love for these amazing girls.
really, i LOVE them. they are like my family.
We do life together on the daily, through massive amounts of texting,
and sometimes skyping or face-timeing.
They have been there for me this year, throughout all I have dealt with and faced.
They have been a foundation for encouragement for me and are the most life-giving group ever.
When something is happening in my life, they are at the top of the list of who I want to talk to...
about the good and the bad.
They are my people.
Well, obviously because we can't stand not seeing each other, as soon as last year's trip to NY ended,
we were planning this year's...to Seattle!
I cannot believe it has already come and gone.
danielle, kara, hannah, carina, jami, esther, leslie, and aly
are the ones I got to hug tightly this past weekend.
(And we dearly missed heather and steph, as they couldn't come again this year.)
I can't wait to share more with you.
SO much has been stirred in my heart after being with these women for 5 days.
But first I had to share like a million pictures with you.
sorrynotsorry. :) Enjoy!
I feel like it is so rare. Or maybe its not, and maybe I just feel extremely lucky.
But I am constantly blown away at the blessing these women are in my life.
Who knew that through blogging and tweeting...I would meet some of my very best friends.
God is SO wonderful!
I love you girls. :)
(and now I'm gonna go cry, obvi.)
