F is for Friends and Flowers...

All my tween and teen years I had a lot of boy friends, not romantically, I mean male friends... and usually I didn't had a lot of girl friends and it wasn't odd to see me with 10 boys around and no other girl.
I wasn't a tomb-boy but I enjoyed enormously "my boys" or "the boys" as I liked to called them.
I, of course, had a crush with one of them that never got to anything because he wasn't into it... but until today we are best friends and we've known each other for 25 years... all our life if you think we are 28!!
We had several trips, speciall days, traditions, adventures, camping, hicking and more... even back packing to Europe with some of us.

A few years ago, some of the boys started to have girl friends (romantically) and I had my "empty nest crisis" fearing that they would leave the group forever for them... then I got married and to my surprise, I was the one that left to live in the USA with MG (who wasn't part of the group since we were little).

All this time that I've been away, they have continue our special days and now it's a group of boys and girls.
While we were in high school we started to have "Tuesdays" among other days, and on Tuesday we used to go to one of us house, to had lunch and spent the afternoon playing and enjoying... something we continued through college.
This days, as most of "us" work until late, they meet at night, to have dinner together and play board games...

And you can remember that I went to this week Tuesday 2 days ago...

Well, I would have never thought about it... but that day I spent a whole more time hunging out with the girls than with the boys!! and, as the boys wanted to leave because it was late and they were tired, we got our conversation interrupted, so we are having coffee together today in a little while to enjoy a girls afternoon...

I have new Friends... and I'm excited!!

See you soon!

Oh! the flowers are still blooming... they don't smell but are pretty gorgeous!!!
and we counted the steams and they are only 10!!!!!!!!!!!
