After spending Easter with my sister and childhood besties, I was reminded of the picture above.
This was taken the summer I turned 4. We must have gotten into our swimsuits so we could go for a splash in the kiddie pool, which was just beyond the camera’s view.
I am the girl in the bikini, check out my hair compared to my bff Nancy’s! She always looked like a princess.
I remember watching, in awe, as Nancy’s mom styled her hair. She would part Nancy’s hair and put it into high pigtails, then brush the pigtails around her finger to create perfect ringlets.
Our moms no longer do our hair and we don’t run around the backyard in our bathing suits, but we have as much fun today as we did then.
The four of us are forever bonded by our lifetime of shared memories and by the memories we continue to make.
We are most fortunate to be girlfriends for life.
