I have five dear friends that I can't imagine my life without, because I've never known a life without them.
Their names are David, Max, Jeff, Catherine, and Sadie.
They have been a crucial piece of the puzzle that is my life for over twenty years.
A group of friends does not typically stay best friends for twenty years.
But we did.
Last week Max got married. The second of the group (Cath kicked it off), but the first of the boys.
The six of us were reunited for the first time in a while. Cath flew in from NYC, Jeff came from California, and David flew in from Seattle.
It was the happiest day. I truly treasure moments in life when my heart is bursting with happiness for someone I care about. Max's new bride, Laura is perfect for him in every way. They were just glowing and I love them so much.
I practically demanded the photographer to capture that first photo above. And I'm going to treasure it always.
I just love those five faces so much. They probably have no idea how grateful I am to each of them for standing by me and supporting me since I was three years old. I hope I've done a fraction for them of what they've done for me.
I'm pretty sure that if we've not only managed, but made it a priority to stay in each other's lives for this long, we'll have many more moments to come.
And once again, my heart is happy.
