Michelle -- Maybe my most ambitious and accomplished friend, Michelle is most certainly not one of the roommates Pepper and I were trying to avoid living with as I alluded to earlier. (Now I'm hoping that the girls I was referring to do not read my blog. Oops.) Far from it, in fact. Michelle was a delight to live with, and she taught me a lot. She's an attorney, she's a ballroom dancer, she's a mother, and I hope she believes me when I say that she shouldn't be offended!
Courtney -- I've known Courtney since I was 16, and she was the beautiful, smart, popular, sassy older next door neighbor of the guy I was crushing on. Now she's the beautiful, smart, popular, sassy, cute former neighbor of the man I married. She so very graciously welcomed me into "the cul-de-sac" with open arms ten years ago, and I love her for it. Visit her blog and marvel.
Alice -- Alice is a cool chica. We have a lot in common: music, religion, kids, Suns. Our respective sisters married the same man. What more is there? We are kindred spirits (in the material world, are spirits in the material world. . . .) But where my talents and interests stop, Alice's keep going. There is much in this world that Alice is good at. I'll bet she wouldn't end a sentence with a preposition.
