A friend who I've known since we were 11 is getting married next August. We've only lived in the same city for three of these past 8 years (the initial three when we went to 6-8th grade together), but we've stayed in contact and stayed friends the whole time. She's the first of my my-aged friends to get married.
She just asked me to be her bridesmaid. Yay!
I had planned on going already, but I'm thrilled that now I get to be a part of it. Partially because now I dont have to decide for myself what to wear. ;) But no, I am thrilled. And excited, and happy for her. Plus it's in Maryland, so that should be fun.
