Girls Weekend...Vail Edition.

Girls Weekend...Vail Edition.

9B9A8091.jpg

As you can tell from the very inspiration for this site, I work with some amazing women.

Last year, we all were craving a getaway, so we took a trip to Estes in May. We had such a great time that we were practically planning this year's trip by the end of that one.

With a change of scenery and down a special gal (missed ya Debbie!), we headed up to Vail on Friday night.

We ate, drank, laughed, pretended to exercise, and.we.DANCED. If it weren't for the threats on my life, I would publish the choreographed music video we made to Bell Biv Devoe's Poison. Alas, the world will forever be deprived of seeing our bodacious bods in action. 

On a serious note, weekends like this remind me why I'm in Denver. You see, I miss Philly constantly: my family, my friends, the food, the people, the ministries I worked with...it's difficult for me to be fully present in a life that is so far from the one I spent 24 years building.

But all it takes is 48 hours in the mountains with my favorite gals to give me a sense of belonging. I used to compare each facet of life in Denver to the ones at home...from restaurants to relationships. But to compare these friendships would be such a disservice. I used to think that my friendships here could never catch up to the ones I left behind. But connection isn't always about the length of time you've known someone. Sometimes it's just about knowing someone at the right time. And I have come to know these girls (and many others) at just the right time.

I praise the Lord for each of the people He has put in my life in the past three years and I thank Him for His patience with me as I forget, and then remember again, to be grateful. 

(Also, thank you Alexxa, Aneta, Annie, Micaiah, and Rachel for a much-needed breath of fresh air this weekend. You'll never know what your friendship means to me!)

We take our eating very, very seriously.

"Exercise."

Ugh. Can't believe we had to leave.
