So, some of you have seen me blog about my frustration at making new friends at the ripe old age of 31. It can be hard to get established in a new place. I have been here a year and I'm slowly making progress.
Back in Colorado, I had a core group of friends. It was small but it was quality. It was hard to leave my little group.
Well, this past weekend, we started talking about having a little event at our home for my birthday in May. We sat down and started making a list and I easily came up with 40 people and there were more names that I could add. It really surprised me. Do I really know that many local people? Will they all fit in my backyard?
I think part of it is that many of them are my husband's friends. Also, it seems easier to meet people as a married couple. I don't know why that is but it seems to be true. But I have also been working really hard to join groups and get active in the community. Slowly but surely I am getting to know people better. And even though my dear friend Jen just moved away to Atlanta, I still have a possibility of 40 people at my birthday party. Not too shabby.
