Girls trip to Branson, MO

This year has been a busy one for us, we have been traveling a lot, so my blog has suffered. We have been so blessed to have this opportunity to just explore new places and things.

At the end of last year I was invited to go on a girlie trip with two of my best friends from high school. It's been 42 years since we graduated and until our Facebook connection a few years back and our 40 year class reunion in 2013, we'd gone about 35 years since we'd seen each other, or even been in touch.

After graduation, we all went our seperate ways, got married, had children, and lived busy lives, etc, etc, etc.

When we did reconnect on Facebook, we pretty much picked up right where we left off. Still busy though, and with conflicting schedules and miles between us, we were never able to get together. 

We had our class reunion, and it was like we were back in high school! Other than being 40 years older, we all pretty much stayed the same, true friends even after all these years.

Last fall Karen invited Annette and I to her time share in Branson, MO. A beautiful log cabin nestled in a quiet area just minutes from Branson and Silver Dollar City.

We had a blast!!! The years hadn't changed a thing! Except for a few extra pounds and a few more wrinkles, we were still the same crazy chicks.

I forgot how beautiful Missouri is, the views, the weather, it was all perfect!

The cabin was so beautiful and cozy, and so quiet.

The first morning we all crawled into bed and drank our coffee......

Went on a wine tour.......

Even went and sampled some honest-to-goodness Missouri Moonshine! 

Strong enough to put hair on your chest!

Went to Silver Dollar City and goofed around, I have a picture of my kids when they were little in this same place, so I thought it was fitting.

Walked, rode bikes, relaxed, talked, laughed until we cried..........

and skipped stones:)

I had the time of my life.


  1. Content. That's how I felt during our girls getaway. Knowing some friendships never die, you have lifelong friends, unconditionally that there is no feeling of pressure, competition or jealousy. Just the bond of true friends. We are truly blessed.

    1. That is what true friendship is Karen, content is the perfect word. I can honestly say that I had the time of my life. The in depth conversation was very therapeutic, and much needed. Thank you my dear friend for such an amazing week! I love you.
