indiana holds some really special people.
this is a group of me and 4 of my high school girlfriends and [some of] our little ones. it's hard to believe we graduated high school almost 9 years ago! but then you look at that gaggle of babies (with 2 of them not pictured), and then i guess it's a little more believable that much time has passed. i was blessed to have such a great group of girlfriends to do my high school years with - and feel that is even more apparent 9 years later that i still call them friends. (we missed those of you who couldn't be there!) they are all such amazing ladies, and often wish i lived closer to be able to see them (and their families) more often.
while i don't have a sister, i do have my cousins who i spent many, many days of my childhood with - birthday parties, cookouts, sleepovers at grandma and grandpa's, family vacations, and so on. i feel incredibly lucky to have a family i care so much about, and ones that i love enough to really miss now that we live 500 miles apart. i love these girls immensely, and always am looking forward to our next family occasion that we all get to be together again.
