You Really Should Go Home Again



I spent last week in Indianapolis with my besties from college.  And it was amazing!

Oh sure, they are all married, living in fun homes and most have precious babes.  But when the four of us are together, time stands still.  Nothing, in regards to our personalities and chemistry, has changed.  I was the best kind of weepy all week as I realized that sometimes it's totally OK to go home again.  To reminisce.  To bask in the sunlight of our glory days.  To walk around campus and giggle at all the silly things we did.  Oh I am just so glad that I went back to visit with my Indy crew. 

The four of us are all so different.  It's a bit of a wonder that we found ourselves bonded so tightly for nearly 15 years (gulp...time flies when you get old!).  But when we're together, we balance each other.  We bring out the best in one another.  I love being able to reflect back on our relationship, as now I can see how well we all just work into each other's lives. 

I like living here in the North Pole.  I do.  Especially now.  Summer here is breathtaking.  But I've not managed to gather a group of best friends as I have in several other cities.  And I miss it dearly.  It was just so good for my soul to have an entire week to laugh until it hurt with my best girls.  To love on their little ones.  To hug people who love me for my quirks, not despite them. 

Those Butler Besties filled me up again.  I feel much more me after all of my trips to see friends this month.  Having to fly in for a play date with a best friend is completely unideal.  And I am possibly reaching the end of my rope living so far from a core group.  But for now, I feel refreshed.  And reminded that I am a very lucky little girl to have so many amazing women in my life!

Good for you! I did something similar earlier in the month and it is good to go back home. I realized that home really is now where i am and that felt good too.
