What does one say after coming down from having one of the very best weekends of their lives?
GRATEFUL is really the first word that comes to mind. Grateful for my beautiful
girlfriends sisters. Grateful that such a beautiful place exists, only a three hour plane ride away. Grateful for my family, who recognized how important it was for me to spend this time recharging my batteries, and grateful that I will forever have this weekend etched in my memory, and the pictures to prove that, yes, it was real. There are so many things about this trip that I can't help smiling about when I think of them. Getting stuck in the pouring rain (more than once.) Gorging on beignets and cafe ole's (definitely more than once.) The dinners, the dancing, the friends we made... all of it was so surreal. In the end, the thing I will remember most is the laughing. Laughing like I haven't laughed in years. Laughing so hard it hurts, and laughing in to the wee hours of the morning. These two ladies bring such incredible joy in to my life, and all I can say is thank you from the bottom of my heart for such an incredible four days. I'm already counting down until next year!!!
Here are a few pictures from our trip, if you'd like to see. If you haven't been to New Orleans, this is most definitely a place to add to your bucket list!
To my future Golden Girls... thank you for being a friend!
