Great Friends + Old Memories = FABULOUS TIMES

There's nothing like spending some quality time with FABULOUS friends, especially those you don't get to see very often! That's exactly what I did last week. These girls are some of my best friends! We met 6 years ago in graduate school at UK. That means that we survived grad school together, and probably only because we had each other during those years! We've taken road trips to Atlanta and Gatlinburg and over the years have laughed till we cried more times than I can count. For three days last week, that's exactly what we did, laughed until we cried as we reminisced about good times and bad times, and made some new memories to add to the old. Oh, and Tucker was right there in the mix of things! He made sure all his aunts-to-be got to feel him kick inside Mommy's tummy! :)

Virginia, on the left, now practices school psychology in North Carolina where her husband is completing his residency. Selfishly, I hope one day his work brings them closer to me again. They are in the process of adopting a baby from Ethiopia. Their story is a true testimony of faith and obedience, love and patience. Check out their story here. I cannot wait until Baby E and Tucker play together!!!

Robyn is next in the picture. She is practicing in Hardin County. Even though that is not very far from me, with busy schedules, we don't get to see each other as often as we'd like. She got married last summer and is about to celebrate her one year anniversary. On top of all that, she is an awesome Jazzercise instructor! :)

Jessica and I see each other pretty often. Her and her husband live in Louisville with their beautiful daughter, Savannah, who turned one in April. Jess is an amazing mom. I feel so blessed to have her friendship. I'm not sure I would have survived the last 4 years of my job without Jessica's love and support! Ha ha!

Girls, we cannot wait as long for our next "psycho reunion" (as Wes refers to it!). I had a GREAT time and LOVE y'all very much! I cannot wait for Tucker to meet y'all!!!! :)

How weird/small world is it that I know Virginia's husband from High School and I know your friend Robin from Gtown!!!

What is that 6 degree to separation?? I think we only need 2 or 3!!

Glad you had fun! There is NOTHING better than Old Friends and reminiscing about Good Ol' Times!!
