Loves. of. my. life.


I’m going to be reunited this weekend with some loves of my life + one beautiful new baby.

It’s crazy to think how life has changed.  It seems like yesterday we were watching our favorite episode of FRIENDS while drifting to sleep at the KKG house.  Next year we’ll turn the big 3-0.  We’ve got wonderful husbands, great careers and are starting to create families of our own.

Life continues to change and it’s hard to reconnect on a regular basis.  I’m just so thankful we can still find the time to celebrate the large milestones in each other’s life.

That, and reruns of the best show ever made.
