It took a few months of planning and some back & forward but we finally made it, a trip only for us, four childhood friends turning 40 that live all over the map but somehow never lost touch.
We know each other since G-d knows when, kindergarten? Experienced life together, laughed, cried, went to study overseas, got married, divorced then married again , had kids, went our separate ways as adults but still share that special bond that can put us in a room as if time has not passed by.
We complement each other, we can argue and not get upset, we can have different opinions but still respect each other.
This is the way I describe them …..
S : Strong minded ,highly educated , gorgeous looking , strongly opinionated , defender of the least fortunate , stubborn, warm heart
R : strong character , defiant, a bit un patience, complacent, stunning ,charismatic , friendly , warm heart
E: Funny, humble, honest, believer, strong moral , free spirit , methodic , easy going , strong faith, warm heart
Me: …………………. Come one I cannot give an opinion on my self
We finally gathered in this amazing location, cozy luxurious cabin, surrounded by mountains, pine smell, fresh air, leaving our husbands, kids & work behind. Total freedom! Drank some wine and stayed up catching up.
We spent 3 days doing all sort of things, massage, spa, walking, eating, touring, hot tub , eating , sightseeing, eating , went to the Sundance Festival location , watch the sunset in the most amazing place sitting in front of a fire place drinking wine , did the zip line down the mountain , I screamed all the way and had my panic attack moment but I DID IT .
We spent quality time taking turns driving, pit stop @ 711 for some slurpee , looking for any coffee shop not Starbucks , eating amazing food and some junk on the way , remembered old boyfriends, first kiss….. Among other crazy stuff, shared views of life, husbands, kids, work and encouraging each other with “BUY IT ! You look amazing on this! You don’t spend this much ever and you are worth it !!!
We should all have our once a year GIRLS ONLY trip , let me tell you it is a self esteem booster, heartwarming, feel good moment .
My favorite part of the entire trip …… waking up at 6:30 am in the cabin realizing this is not a dream, gathering in bed in our pajamas next to my best friends in the world having amazing conversation.
How amazing it is that we can still connect in every level.
So as we read the definition of “Friend” they missed one portion : Loyal, empathy, sincere , loving .
Love you girls …….. Looking forward to next year get away
