Over the past few weeks I have reconnected with people in my life. Friends that I use to be so close to seemed like strangers to me only weeks ago. I had no idea what was really going on with them or what plan they had for the future. I guess getting married does that to you. The closeness to my friends started going on the back burned when I decided to get married. Suddenly it was more important to me to figure out what I needed to do to better prepare myself for marriage, I mean come on I was making the biggest decision of my life and deciding to spend eternity with someone. This made it hard for me to relate to boy drama of dating or talking about short term things. My focus was on much different things. My close friends sensed this I think and started retreating. At first I did not notice, but slowly I realized that when I really needed my friends they had all but faded away. But now things have changed. I still can't really relate to dating drama and awkward situations with boys because I am no longer living that life. When you are married your perspective changes, so you become less interested in juicy dating stories and more interested in spending time with your husband. I feel like my friends have now seen that me being married has changed me, but for the better. We just talk about different things now, which at one point before I was married I thought that could never happen.
So here is to all my friends that I have reconnected with, who never really left at all. Thanks for giving me space to figure out what was important to me and how much you mean to me. Here is a picture from the past with one of my oldest and dearest friends. I think we were junior's in high school.
