Self Care Sundays: Friends Are Soul Food


Last weekend my good friend had a birthday. To celebrate another good friend and I decided to visit her and spend Sunday being tourists in Seattle, where the birthday girl lives. As a surprise, another friend showed up for the day, as well. We were missing two of our core group of “girls” from high school, who have remained close friends over the past 13 years (!), but they were there in spirit and I’m sure we’ll all be together soon.

In any case, there’s really nothing like being with people who know you so well you can, literally, do anything and they are not surprised or weirded out. These are the kinds of friends who are family. I love them unconditionally and I’m pretty sure they feel the same way. Here’s a photo tour of our day (renamed to “Selfie Sunday). Hope you had an awesome birthday, Rosarita! I know I enjoyed it.


The first selfie of the day. She looks terrified, but she was really excited. I’m almost 100% sure.


After about 50 selfies I asked them how much they love selfies.


Get that baby to the bathroom!! But don’t hold it to close!


What? You don’t take selfies of your friends in bathroom stalls? I thought everyone did that.


Waiting for E to get picked up. It was like a paparazzi moment or something. It was so crazy and phones were ringing and cars were flashing by and OMG!!!


What do pirates say?


Ferris wheel fun!!! Not scary at all!!


Only we know what we were saying. Good times. Big pigs.
