|The weekend's signature cocktail: The Ladybug|
Every girl has at least one BFF—you can count on her to remember outrageous stories from the past, help you rationalize future life decisions, ignore your less than sizeable condo and focus on the comfort of the blowup mattress that you have to offer, and make you laugh over glasses of wine, chocolate truffles, YouTube dance video reenactments and Instagram pics.
I’m lucky enough to have a great group of girlfriends from college, and even more fortunate that we can occasionally put our careers, significant others, kids and obligations aside to focus on our friendships. As these photos can attest, we wholeheartedly did just that this past weekend. Needless to say, I don't think I'll have to eat or drink for a week.
