Girls’ weekend

At 36 years of age, I’ve finally attended my first girls’ weekend. And you know what? It was pretty fun! (Yay!)

I was never invited to girly get-togethers in high school—likely because I was a bit of a Tomboy and shunned girly stuff. Chatting about boys, hair, makeup, clothes, and ‘personal girly things’ was certainly not something I cared to do. But when I got my first-ever invite to my first-ever girls’ weekend this time, I was excited!

So, after work on Friday I made the drive to the Columbia River gorge near Vantage where my sister and her best friend were waiting for my arrival at the Beach House. The three of us had a fab evening visiting and chatting. Then Saturday morning we had a leisurely morning before heading to the river to float on the water and read books.

Not long after the rest of the ladies arrived, a rain storm set in so the six of us sat around inside chatting and visiting until the weather cleared.

On Sunday, another leisurely morning was enjoyed before I had to make the long drive home. Of course, the long drive was well worth it because it really was a fab weekend! Plus, on the way home I stopped at Starbucks and had an awesome coffee experience, which just added to the awesomeness of the weekend!

Thanks for inviting me, ladies!!
