My last birthday in Middle Earth was one of the most memorable birthdays I've ever had...I had all my favorite women in one room...all wearing green and having a good time. I had this click of wonderful women of color that were my crew called the sister girls. That night they were all there. Yesterday one of those lovely women sent a tweet out with a picture of the card I had sitting on every girls' plate.
She kept the card! I talk about that card ALL.THE.TIME. to everyone who will listen. Partially because The Color Purple is my favorite film of all time, but also because it summed up my feelings for those women to a T.
I have a dear friend who hosted and put together that party for me. An event planner, to the bone, Vikkie didn't miss a single detail. It was absolutely perfect. I'm hoping similar memories and good times are had at my bachelorette party this summer. My J and gal pal E are doing the damn thing. They've planned this amazing weekend and done exactly what I love to do most; they're allowing me to honor the women who I've fallen in love with over the years. I can't wait!
There's something about the act of honoring friendships that puts me in the best of moods.
