in another life

This photo wasn't taken all that long ago. Some days it feels like years, and some days it feels like I'm just running 10 minutes late to meet them...

Three of the five [including me, taking the picture!] are moms or soon-to-be-moms. But no sign of that in this picture...I think we were all talking about boys on this particular occasion...birthdays, new husbands, steady sweeties and the boys in the adjacent booth. The clock keeps turning, my butt gets bigger and my face wrinklier, but I always feel like I'm right there...old enough to know better but still young enough to get over it the next morning. Cheers to these ladies, with whom I can always pick up right where we left off.

A special shout goes out to D (Second from left), who gave birth to a little girl on Monday. I have no doubt that little K and her older sister T will be totally running the world in a few measly years. (In fact, I'm counting on it! Step aside, Hilary!) Congratulations, W-ski family on your newest member! I will start conjugating German verbs with her when I visit this weekend... tell her to be ready! Ja wohl!
