Some Things Never Change....

I've been noticing changes in my friendships lately--as we get older, get married, have babies, and get busy, it's hard to maintain things the way you used to. And while I know this change is good and healthy and normal, it still makes me a little sad.

So I made this page to remind myself that the core things that make me friends with these women will not change, even if the expression of that friendship does.


Supplies used: Studio Calico (fabric strips, label sticker), Fiskars (border punch), Harmonie(wood letters), Lily Bee (everything else).

Journaling: Our lives as a foursome are so different now. Some of us married, all of us living in different places. Big changes. But I know these girls and I will always have something special together. May 2010.


Speaking of things that DO change, on the other hand-- S graduated from law school today!

In the beginning, I wanted to cry because the music and ceremony triggered those heartstrings. After watching over one thousand graduates get "hooded" for hours I wanted to cry again. For different reasons. But generally a good time was had by all, or at least most of the people most of the time.

We followed the ceremony with a delicious lunch where I fell in love with tempura sushi (and hung out with my hubby and his family).

I'll leave you with a silly photo of my handsome graduate:


Anyone have graduations coming up? Have a great weekend!

  1. awww fun shot of the grad and yeah things change. but there are some friends that even if you don't have constant contact, they are the friends that easily pick up where you left off as if no gap occurred. those are the treasures.

  7. Oh I can totally relate about friendships changing. I have a hard time with that too. I'm so thankful they are still in my life but grieve those days in the past when we were all single and carefree! Congrats to your hubby!

  8. Love your layout...yes friendships change... the wonderful thing is new people come into your life and also sometimes way down the road you also reconnect. At 45 who would think that most of my conversations are with the mom's of the girls my daughter is on the competative gymnastics team with. Congrats on the graduation, I can't wait until you scrap those photos.

  10. Congrats to your hubby on his graduation! :) That's a great layout. (Oh, and to answer your question from about a week ago - sorry, I'm slow - it was a site called "Virtual Places" that doesn't exist anymore, as far as I know).
