Twice today

Twice today, I ended a phone conversation with a close friend with, "I love you!" (Well, for sake of a good post, I did say it to Jill, and I REALLY wanted to say that when I was hanging up with Michelle but I was in a hurry and I forgot!)

Anyway, my point is that I have two girlfriends with whom I can comfortably end a conversation with "I love you" and have it not feel awkward. That makes me feel great!

I've never really been one of those girls who can cuddle in bed with another girlfriend, or be super huggy, or throw "I love you's" around, etc. Expressing those signs of affection with girlfriends have always felt a bit unnatural to me.

Until recently. Perhaps it's maturity, perhaps it's finally a deep enough respect and connection, perhaps a lot of things that I guess just don't really matter in the scheme of things.

But seriously, Jill and Michelle, I LOVE YOU girls!
(see...not at all awkward. Progress!)

That's really nice!!! I have one really good friend that I say I love you too....but no others. Hmmm....maybe I need more good friends like that!

I love you too, to pieces! Excited to see you this weekend!

I love, respect and admire you. You know...I think I started saying it to the women around me because I believe we don't heard it often enough. You should know you are loved, every day. And you're right..it's so not weird ... it's an affirmation that I'm here, you're here, holding each other up, no matter what :)
