These girls have been friends for 20+ years.
Let me repeat. TWENTY years.
As Megan might say, "What the fox?"
I asked Lori to explain what being friends for 20 years is like, this is what she had to say:
"Two decades. That's how long these girls have been friends. 20+ I've cherished our friendships, basked in our laughs, and impatiently awaited our next girls' trip together. We met as teenagers at the College of William & Mary (go TRIBE!!!), celebrated each other at every wedding, welcomed lots of babies and many more fur-babies, and consoled each other on all the challenges that come with this thing called 'adulting' we're still trying to figure out. How lucky we are to have found a small tribe we can grow old with... while still acting like kids we really are inside.
This amazing long weekend concluded our tour de 40th birthday celebrations. Thank you to Amy for helping us capture all the randomness we are, and giving us an inappropriate cross-stitch session we'll remember forever.
Until next time..."
-Lori (Atlanta) with Leena (Maryland), Mary (Tennessee), and Megan (Virginia)

4. You know that there are some things that you can tease them about...

7. You have strange nicknames for each other.
8. You've worn couple's costumes for at least one party.
