Total Basset Case: Miss Marge at Large

Miss Marge at Large

Not to brag, but my college girlfriends are the best there has ever been.
Us ladies met in college and we haven't looked back since.  
I feel incredibly lucky to have these ladies in my life.  Like it makes me choke up sometimes how special they are to me.
I do not have any siblings and these ladies are the closest and BEST thing to a group of sisters that I could have ever asked for.  Ever. 

We even have a group name that we refer to ourselves dorky as it is, just hearing it warms my heart.  To us, our boys and our friends, we are the Ladydawgs (long story) and I don't know what I would do without my Ladydawgs in my life.

I am so proud of each of these ladies in their own way.  Each of them is beautiful, successful and the most loyal of friends in the world.  I am honored to know them and call them friends.
We laugh (A LOT), we cry, we share, we talk, we drink wine and we just have a generally amazing time with each other.   
(sadly we are missing a few key players in this photo)

And speaking of proud, one of our ladies is embarking today on THE biggest adventure in her life and we could absolutely not be more proud of her. 
Margaret is taking a year off from work and traveling the world. By herself.  
The world! 
Portugal, Bali, South America, Croatia and more!  HOW freaking amazing is that?!  
It's that thing that everyone dreams about, talks about and wants to do but barely ever comes to fruition and she's doing it like a freaking rockstar!
And while we are going to miss her like cra.zy, we are so happy for her!! 

Last weekend we made it a top priority to spend our entire weekend with Margaret, soaking up every last moment that we could with her.  
And soak it up we did! From the moment we were done with work on Friday until Sunday afternoon when we all stood in a circle on the sidewalk crying, hugging and saying bon voyage to our girl...we all got in as many hugs as possible around her pretty neck.

Margaret has started a blog to document her travels (seriously, it's so good!) so be sure to go follow her and her amazing adventures.  
I canNOT wait to see what this year holds for her, the friends she will meet, the sights she will see and the amazing food she will eat.  

We are so incredibly proud of you, Marge!
Love you!  Safe travels!!!
