my outfit: ladies who lunch!

I'm totally not a "lunching lady"... but when a gal pal from out of town is around... we "meet" for lunch.  Does that count!?!? We met for lunch at my favorite spot, aka pretty much the only spot I eat out at, and sat on the patio for a few hours eating and talking and it was like I just saw her yesterday.  Although we hadn't seen one another in person for almost two years.  (really, eliz? two years!?!? sheesh!)

Elizabeth and I went to college together and even lived for a year together as well.  To say I have fond memories of our friendship and fun during those years is a gross understatement.  But what I love the most is that even though we have a rich and storied past - we love to talk about our futures and ideas and our lives now more than even reminisce about what were some of the greatest years of our lives.  Do you see the difference there? It's like we are such strong and amazing women these days that our futures are even BETTER than what that amazing past was.

It's kind of hard to explain. But what I do know is that she inspires me and makes me want to be a better person.  She chases her dreams and I love that her strengths tend to want to bring mine out as well.  Also, she took my outfit photos for me.  Friend for life there.  Although, she's pretty handy with a camera... so it was old hat for her.

Love you Eliz.  Love you lots.

Plus, she's gorgeous... and an amazing writer, and a working mom, and a mother to three boys, also she married her college sweet heart and they are an amazing couple.  Can I get an amen!?!?
