NO BOYS ALLOWED
A marvelous "Girl Fort" has taken residence in the living room while Mark is away on tour (more about that later). There is ice cream, girl talk, and movies such as "Girls Just Want to have Fun". Best of all there are incredibly intelligent ladies that make me laugh almost-crash-the-car hard (Evie, I'm still chuckling about the bike peg story).
There was a time in my life where I was surrounded by boys. Both at home and in my High School clique. Then I chose a major in college that was 95% male. I always assumed that it was better that way, less drama right? Feelings of anxiety even began to creep up as more and more girls replaced my guy friends.
And at my birthday party this year I was completely surrounded by ladies. We were all eating fantastic food and talking about toe puss and laughing our faces off. Maybe girls aren't so bad. Maybe I was really missing out on something. Who else is going to enable my girly yard sale purchases, or swap canning recipes, or tediously search through pantone swatches to come up with the perfect color palette for my wedding?
