Taylor and I met on my first day of third grade when I moved to Kentucky in 1993.  Over the last 18 years we have experienced some of the greatest highs (being each other's maid of honor) and lows (scratching out BFF status on our trapper keepers in the 5th grade after a fight) together.  It is so refreshing to know somebody out there "gets" me.  I can tell her anything and I know she will understand....even when it is pretty crazy.  We have shared so many memories together, it would take a novel to share them all. 

We are fortunate enough to live 5 miles away from each other and talk every day on the phone.   Even though we see each other a lot, a little away time with your bestie is always a treat.  Yesterday, we headed up to Cincinnati to do a little shopping for Harper's room.  We enjoyed some therapeutic chats in the car, had a delightful lunch (at which I was able to stay seated and not chase around a crazed 1 year old), dominated Ikea, hit up Anthropologie, enjoyed a well deserved smoothie and managed not to get lost on our way home (which I wouldn't call the drive there lost, we just wanted to enjoyed the scenic view of Cincinnati's ghetto).   All in all, it was a perfect day.  Sometimes you just need a little girl time!!
