The older I get, the more I realize that good relationships must be treasured. And even with those, life has a way of making changes, bringing people in and out, changing the dynamics, the time spent, and the overall flavor of a relationship or friendship.
When we moved to WA, I didn’t expect to find actual friends here. We knew it would be beautiful. We knew it would be different. We knew we had to take the chance and make the move. But we didn’t know who we would meet. And we didn’t know they would be such fantastic people.
These are my friends, my “besties”, and they have made my life better here in WA. They are true country girls. I’m the wannabe! They have helped me shovel snow, invited me and my family over for meals, had picnics at the lake, chatted at the poolside, sat in the jacuzzi, changed a flat tired, given me rides, taught my daughter about horses, gone snow skiing, gone boating and water skiing, gone camping, played games, watched movies, weeded in my garden, shopped with me in town, labored over how to homeschool teen boys, taken care of my dogs, washed my dishes, watched my kids, taught me how to drive in snow, and taught me how to chill and relax.
These women are capable, determined, talented, and hard working. I am proud to know them, and proud to be their friend!
Enjoying a rare moment when we didn’t smell like dogs, didn’t have on blue jeans, and didn’t have our hair in a ponytail!
