Girls Weekend!

Monday, September 10, 2012

My closest group of girl friends have not all been in the same state / country at the same time for almost three years.  We all scattered for college and then after graduation people went abroad to work or traveled away to grad school.  We would see each other as often as possible but we were never able to get all six of us together at once.

This past weekend was the first time we were all together and we decided to make a weekend of it.  We had several things to celebrate including an engagement, a birthday, a few master's degrees and several new jobs.  My friend's aunt has a campsite on Lake Ossipee and she was nice enough to let us use it for the weekend.  I was only about a mile from where I camped last weekend but the area is so nice that I could see myself going up there every weekend if I had a place to stay.

We spent most of Saturday at the beach enjoying the late summer sun.  I even managed to get my first sunburn of the summer.  Whoops.

We spent the night cooking, drinking wine, playing games, and chatting.  My friends were sneaky and had bought a cake while they distracted me at the grocery store and I was completely clueless until they were placing the cake on the table in front of me.

We also managed to fit in a quick hike on Sunday before heading home.

It was a wonderful weekend and it was so nice to have the time to just relax and hang out.
