This will be short and sweet because I’m sure the other ladies will be writing better recaps than I ever could. That being said, you should know that my last four days were spent hanging out with five of the most amazing women I’ve ever met, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I can’t even begin to count the number of times that one of us would comment about how (a) it felt like hanging out with old friends, not people we’d just met for the first time “in real life,” and (2) how nice it was to talk to ladies who got it. Of course our conversations often started with a TTC/IF angle, but then we could just as easily segue into talking about marriage, love, money, family, friendships, and many other things that cannot be mentioned here that had nothing to do with IF.
I also love that even while sitting in the house together and chatting, we’d refer to our “real life friends” in stories… and then laugh that we were still apparently referring to each other as “non” real life friends. I guess we might need to change that mindset after a weekend of chatting, drinking, crying, and laughing together. Sounds like real life friends to me. 🙂 We spent the majority of our time sitting around in the room below, just talking and talking (including a 2+ hour Skype session with E – missed you lady!). It was so nice to feel so incredibly comfortable with these women, and luckily they were quite understanding when Oak and I had a constant need to nap. Sllllleeeeeep… sleep is good.
Love you ladies – thanks for such a wonderful weekend!!! I can’t wait for 2012. 🙂
