I recently got together with my cousins for a baby shower. I don't know what it is, but there is something so special about that relationship.
We are all so very different. Some of us were raised in a very privileged life, some were not. Some were raised in California, some in Florida, some in Utah. Some of us are married, some are not. Some of us are mother's, some are not. Some of us are loud and outgoing, some of us are reserved and shy. But when we get together, it doesn't really matter anymore. It's like the last 20 years have been stripped away and we are all little girls having so much fun together that we plot and plan to get our parents to let us have a sleepover.
These are girls I am lucky to see every 6 months or so, but who I feel so comfortable with. I feel so lucky that I have them.
