I’m just getting back from a girls weekend. I was able to spend several days with some of my best friends. We have been friends for 20+ years and we try to go on trips together about once every year or other year. This year, we planned a trip to Chicago – just us. No kids, husbands, pets, etc.
What does a girls weekend entail when you’re 30-something and have 2 kids? Well, it was pretty perfect. It included:
Some delicious dining. Including deep dish pizza (of course!), breakfast sandwiches, homemade bagels and lox and birthday treats.
Some relaxing by the hotel rooftop pool.
Some exercise. We did one run along the lake, and one gym day with circuit training. We also took a rainy walk along the 606.
Some site seeing.
I even was able to sneak in a short visit with my friend Cuoghi who moved from CLE to Chicago last year. I was so happy to get in a quick visit with her! We enjoyed some cupcakes in the park.
I’m feeling so lucky and grateful to have such amazing friends. Despite many miles keeping us apart and many life changes over the past 20+ years of our friendship, we are still able to pick up right where we left off every time.
Some questions for you:
- Do you have friends that you’ve kept in touch with for many years?
- Where should we go on our next trip?
