Life takes on a new perspective when the ones close to you begin dating, having boyfriends/girlfriends, getting married. Friendships inevitably change when a special someone enters the picture.
I guess it just takes me back to those times when us girls sat around the living room laughing, crying, and talking for hours on end about this boy and that guy. At that time, it felt real, right, it was still fresh. But we move on, have new experiences, meet new people.
There was always that excitement for the future (still is), but at the same time there was a warmness that we shared; a camaraderie of the mutual understanding of being single.
We made jokes about being each others bridesmaids - swearing to choose each other as maid of honour.
Several of my close friends have recently entered into romantic relationships. Two of my cousins are getting married this upcoming year. And so should be expected as we all begin to get older. I guess it just sneaks up on you. I feel as though these next few years are gonna fly by all the same, and that sneaking up will probably become a whirlwind.
I have my whole life ahead of me. Love my be in the air for several of those that I love, but it seems a bit more than a hop, skip and a step away from me. How do I know? Just a feeling. Doesn't mean there isn't that anticipation that bubbles up in my heart every so often.
