I Love These Girls

Exactly a month after Jim died, my college girlfriends treated Marley and I to a girls' weekend at a nice hotel in Indianapolis.  Every one of them drove several hours down from Ohio and Michigan, and one even flew in from the East Coast!  Though we've kept in touch and visited together in various combinations of people/spouses several times since then, we figured it was the first time we'd all been together (sans hubbies/boyfriends/children) since graduation, I think (and that was in 1998!).  They spoiled Marley and me rotten!

We played in the pool and visited the LARGE bird that lived in the courtyard.

They took us out for nice dinners.
First this...

...then this...

...And more of this than I've
had in a LONG time!

In between meals, we hung out in our rooms and visited.

Marley LOVED the attention that was poured
out on her, along with some new books
we picked up while we were waiting
for a seat in the restaurant.

After two glorious days of "girl time", it was time to line up for a group photo.

I love these girls!
Thanks, M'liss, Julie, Kudwa, Ellen, and Jen for knowing just what we needed.


  1. What a fantastic weekend that was!! Love you and Marley SO MUCH and I'm so glad we could spend it together. -Julie

  2. It's hard times that show you just who your friends really are. I am so thankful that God gave you these amazing friends to stand by you and "hold you up" at such a sad time. God bless them, you, & Miss Marley. I love you both!

  3. That was an awesome weekend! I can't wait for the 2nd annual girls weekend. It's great to have friends that even after 13 years we can pick up right where we left off. We love you Meg and Marley!!!! M'liss

  4. Friends like those are a gift!

  5. I'm so glad you have them too!

  6. Ditto! We love you, too! Love, Jen
