I often wish that I could somehow capture a moments in time to put in jars for safe keeping. Then I could take out a particular memory and re-live it whenever I like. I wish I could have bottled up this weekend forever. I was so happy when my friend Ashley said she was going to come for a visit! We live about 4 hours apart, so any time we get together is precious. Saturday we decided to head to the beach for the day. It was nice for both of us not to have a schedule or anywhere we had to be...for the whole day!
We had a great time shopping and eating by the beach. It was definitely a perfect day! The breeze was cool and the sun was warm. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have such lovely weather whenever you wanted? Hehe. Just before sunset we went out to the ocean to snap a few photos. I know people got quite a show watching me run back and forth from my tripod after setting self timer! Haha! We were jumping, laughing and just being goofy! I'm sure it was quite entertaining.
At some point we remembered all the ghetto fabulous photo shoots we did in college! Haha! Neither of us had cameras our first year so we used disposables! Oh the horror! (That was before cameras on phones were any good.) After laughing about that for a while I said, "Well, we still do that now...it's just a little bit more legit!"
Haha. There is always silliness when we get together! If only you knew the things we did in college...
The older I get, the more I appreciate the friendships I have. After college life gets busy and people move, so it takes a lot more effort to invest in relationships. It's so worth it though! When you're married it's easy to just have your husband. Jonathan is my best friend, but it's also good to have other godly women to share life with from time to time. Plus, there are just some things that only a girl can really understand! I am so thankful to God for Ashley. Friends like her are a gift.
