This past weekend I surpassed 30 and jumped to 31…an insignificant birthday by all normal standards, but in my little world it was extremely important! You see last year I moved away from several of my closest friends. It was the hardest part about moving. I couldn’t see their faces whenever I wanted (although google chat offered some relief) and I couldn’t just pop on over and spend time with them. My love language is TIME. Probably because I don’t have much of it to spare. So when I invest time into someone it means they’re REALLY important to me and vice versa. This year my 3 best friends and their hubbies all came to visit me for a long weekend. It was the best birthday present I could ask for! I don’t need “things” to know they love me, they all drove 600+ miles to be with me on my special day! Of course the time went waaaaay too quickly, but it was incredibly special none the less. We spent Friday shooting each others faces, Saturday being bums, and Sunday with good food & movies! The. Perfect. Weekend! We all agreed that this needs to be an annual thing. NC seems to be a great midpoint between FL & NY.

Here are a few shots from our weekend. Most of the pictures were taken on our photo day and then on the morning everyone drove home. It was nice putting down my phone & camera for a day or two so I could live in the moment. I am blessed beyond belief to have these incredible women (and their husbands) in my life! They provide comfort, commiseration, accountability, laughter, song, joy, and general silliness. They’ve all been there for me and I try my best to do the same. They’re all INCREDIBLY talented women and I’m so excited to be part of their artistic journeys. Thank you darlings for making my birthday extra special this year. Come back to me sooooooooon!

XOXOXO,
Mabyn
