Last weekend Michael and I got to spend a couple of days with my bestest friends. Amelia came from Wyoming on a little get-a-way from the amazing work she's doing at a Catholic ranch for troubled girls, and friends from all over the state gathered together to hang out, see new babies and play with "old" ones, and have a hand in a teddy gram poker tournament. (I won, but of course I ate most of the chocolate ones before I could count them...)
I have known these people since my freshman year in college and these girls, especially, show me what it really means to be a woman in a world that tells me a definition that is completely opposite. I love them so much! I only wish we were all closer...But here are some pictures and some memories to share with you!
