Here's to the friends who became family...


Have I told you lately how much I love my BUNCO Buddies? Well I do!! We have had the same group since our kids were little and the friendships only get sweeter! I made a book at Christmas time with old photos through the years(almost 17) and it warmed my heart to see how much we have all grown up together. There was a quote I added that sums it up. "Friends are like the pillars on your porch. Sometimes they hold you up and sometimes they lean on you" How lucky I am so have these fabulous pillars! For every important phase of our life we have had each other.I will never forget at my moms funeral when I looked up and saw the sweet faces of my bunco buddies. They had drove all that way to give love & support.We have been through a lot together and have learned that unconditional love and friendship is a precious gift in this life. I know we are 'older' but it's as though someone forgot to tell us?? We have slumber parties, we dance like teenagers and giggle way more than we should for ladies our age. I am truly blessed!
It was Katie's turn to host Bunco this month and she did so at their wine bar. We had a BLAST! Dan was our amazing host pouring each of us fabulous wines to try.Katie had terrific appetizers,cute decor and cupcakes for dessert (I think she reads my blog) And adding to the fun is that our kids are old enough now to join in the fun! Sweet Bridget is pictured below...
And Alex is on leave from his Navy tour so he stopped by for a dance with his mom...

They had live music and closed the shop for just us girls. We danced and laughed the night away. What a fun night and a big thank you to our wonderful hosts. It's my turn next month and they're a tough act to follow.Steve you need to tune your guitar and we better find my tambourine?

Great friendships are just the BEST! Sounds like you have some wonderful girlfriends! I've always thought that Bunco sounded like a fun game, maybe one of these days I'll learn how to play it. Oh my gosh, I can't wait for next month, you've GOT to record the guitar and the tamborine!!

Your bunco gals need to post on here--I bet they would be great~! Maybe you and Ashlyn can come up with something fun for next month...but that will be a hard act to follow~!

Glad I have your support. xoxo Karen~

Ha ha~! I just chastised Casey for never leaving comments on mine and she said she was going to start saying "Kilroy was here." I mean, really. She writes so well and I told her to say something, anything, so we'll see~!

How fun! Who says you can't be "older" and still have fun like that! I feel older than you right now haha.

Looks like a BLAST!! Nothing is better than a life long friend...or just a friend period! Our family is lucky to call you friend!
