this past weekend i went down to austin, texas for a girls weekend (or perhaps i should call it a ladies weekend) with my friends from grad school. instead of bro-ing out, we ladied out. it was quite nice, as was expected.
as for austin - it was great. warm, delicious food everywhere, a million things to do and see and hear. i'd like to go back for a bit longer and soak up more of the city (and yes, eat some more of that food).
as for my friends - time is moving on. one is pregnant, the kind of pregnant where it looks like she just ate a big dinner. about to really start showing any day now. another is about to move into the house she bought with her husband. slowly but surely we are growing into our lives.
we talked about our five year plans. careers, babies, marriage. what we want. where we want to live. what we want out of our jobs. i wonder if it will all happen, if it will all fall into place. we'll see. it's nice to know no matter the outcome we will always be there for one another, and that, sometimes, is enough.
