As I've gotten older and started my own family my life has obviously changed in many many ways. The majority of all these changes have all been fabulous and welcomed with open arms and an open heart. I've gained an amazing husband and a home and have created the most fabulous little being of all...my little Mees!
Although I've embraced all of these changes.... there are some that still make me a little sad. I feel as though I have become completely disconnected with my close group of girlfriends. It's so hard now to find the time to get together....we all have families, we all have different priorities. I sometimes feel like I don't have that bond anymore with them that I wish so badly to have back. I miss the closeness, I miss the phone calls and I miss the nights out gabbing about anything and everything. (I don't miss being a total mess the next morning but an occasional jag bomb here and there wouldn't be so bad!!!). Sometimes it just feels like I've fallen off the face of the earth and I'm totally out of the loop. It sucks when you hear about something that is going on only to find out after the fact.....peoples lives nowadays are just so crazy busy....and I'm totally guilty of not taking the time to slow down and pay attention!! I truly miss them.....
On the flip side of all of this I've come to realize that family IS my priority. I wouldn't give them up for anything. I love that I hang out with my sisters and B all the time. I love spending time with the hubs. I love that Mia gets to play with Carter and Belle all the time. I love that we all hang out at the house all the time. I want my munchkin to have those kind of memories....the memories that families create.
I do know that I will always love my girls no matter if we talk or see each other on a regular basis. Things may change and we may eventually grow apart but they are people that I will never forget and have had a hand in shaping the person that I am today!!
