The band jammed. Gorgeous flowers adorned the tabletops. Laughter and smiles spread throughout the room. Molly, Christine, Frankie, Rachel and I danced our hearts out as if was an ordinary girls night out.
But then I pushed my mental pause button, just for a second, and I reflected on the moment I was in.
I wasn’t thinking about the blister starting to form on my toe. Or how Molly always has the best dance moves. Or how stunning Christine looks when she smiles. Or how Frankie’s personality lights up the room. Or how Rachel’s face is beaming with happiness and love. (All of which were true!)
Instead, I thought about how lucky I am.
….. lucky to be sharing one of the most important days in Rachel’s life (her wedding!) with some of the most amazing friends. Friends that have come into my life at all different points, yet friends who seem to have been there throughout it all.
It was a moment where I wondered how life turned out this way. How all the crazy paths I took led me to this perfect moment where everything seemed, well, perfect.
Molly. Frankie. Christine. Rachel. These women are truly incredible, and I am so lucky to have them be such a huge part of my life.
When I am with them, I am always in the moment, but at that moment dancing at Rachel’s wedding, I was lost in a moment.
