Day 9 - A Picture of Your Friends
I am fortunate to have several groups of friends. I have my high school friends, college friends and post college friends (who coincidentally co-mingle with my high school friends). It's not that I intentionally keep the groups separate, it just kind of works out that way.
This is my Delta Zeta Family (I'm the second one on the left in the black dress). This is a bit old, I believe it was taken over a year and half ago at Senior night for my grand little (in the red top). My little is standing next to my grand little (red hair, wearing black and white) and the other two are my great grand littles. I love my DZ family and we try to get together at least once a month. I love it because it keeps me connected to the present chapter. They are a wonderful family and there are several girls in the chapter who are amazed that we still get together. It's a tradition that I hope to keep.
In case you were wondering who my DZ Big Sister was, here she is! She is truly one of my best friends. Whenever something major happens in my life she is the first person I call. She is the reason I joined Delta Zeta and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be the person I am today without her. She is a wonderful persona and great friend. I consider myself very lucky to call her a friend.
These are the after college friends. Please ignore the fact that this looks like some sort of class picture. This was actually taken at the end of a weekend vacation we all took to Gatlinburg, TN. We all look a little worse for the wear because literally right after this was taken we hopped in our cars to head home. That weekend was so much and I would love to do it sometime again. The group has changed a bit though as nearly everyone in this picture now has a baby and it makes it hard to get together as much as we used to. They are still a great group of friends and I always enjoy our times together.
My bridesmaids. They were a mixture of family and friends and I am blessed that I had such wonderful people surrounding me on my wedding day.
My high school/grade school friends. We may not see each other on a regular basis, but these are the people who are known me the longest. They know my past and they know my present. They are very important people to me. These are the kinds of people you want around you for the rest of your life. We can go a while without seeing each other, but once we do it's like no time as passed.
And I could add soooo many more, but I think this covers my "close" friends. I can't wait to meet yours!
