Some of you know what S'08 and others are thinking what in the world is this crazy cakes talking about but I'll say it again before I explain I CAN'T WAIT!!!!
S'08 is September of 2008.
My wedding month.
The month of weddings for some of the most amazing women I am lucky enough to "know".
These ladies and I all "met" on a board on the knot.com back before we got married. Most of us still talk on pretty much a daily basis. We now have several outlets for our communications and it is incredible how we have become so tight knit.
We have been through so much together and are always there to support one another through all the ups and downs of life. Planning weddings, the actual weddings, buying/building homes, having babies, illnesses, deaths, and also a divorce. Because of these events that can so drastically alter your life we have formed strong friendships. Even though most of us have never met face to face. I know that these girls will be there for me in good times and in bad just as I would be for them. I am eternally grateful. No matter what has happened in our lives we will be welcomed back to this group of women with open arms. It is a safe haven for a lot of us. We talk about things we don't talk about IRL (in real life) with people who have known us forever. It is real regardless of what others think. Some of these friendships are more real than with people I have known for years.
Now what can't I wait for you ask.... This weekend. March 25, 26, 27 of 2011 I am FINALLY going to be meeting 12! of these women! We are spending the weekend in Chicago eating, sightseeing and talking talking talking!
We have arranged a couple dinners, a night of dancing at a dueling piano bar, going to the top of the Sears Tower (because I refuse to call it by it's new name), a trolley tour and some ladies are doing a food tour.
J & B are going to meet us downtown for a while on Saturday afternoon so I can
I'm so excited to meet these women and wish the rest of them could come as well. Hopefully one day next year we will get it worked out to have a GTG with all of us.
I consider myself so lucky to know such an amazing group of women and am grateful to have each and everyone of them in my life.
To my nesties: I love you all! I will of course be back with pictures galore! :)
