Show and Tell Tuesday-My Tribe


I'm joining Andrea for Show and Tell Tuesday.  Today, we're sharing our tribes.

When I think of my tribe, I think of the people I get to do life with on the daily.  These are the people who are bringing meals when we're a mess, the ones picking up my kiddos when I'm just not gonna make it to school pick-up on time, and the ones I'm continually thankful for because my life just wouldn't be the same without them in it.  :)

If I lived in Missouri, my tribe would look more like this...
but because Tab and I live far away from these lovelies our day-to-day includes a lot more FRAMILY.

 These ladies are MY TRIBE.

They are MY PEOPLE.

They are the ones I call when I'm having a bad day.  The ones I meet up with for a girl's night out.  And the ones I know I could call if I needed ANYTHING.

I'm SO thankful for this group of girls.

We've gone through GREAT times

 and extremely TOUGH times together.

 I hope these girls know I couldn't live this life without them.

It takes a village, 

 and I'm so thankful these faces are with me in mine.

 We've enjoyed numerous tacos together,

 LOTS of new babies, pool dates, and consumed more dips with cream cheese than I care to count.

It's SO important for us ladies to have some amazing women in our lives. Ones that BUILD us up, not tear us down.  God truly blessed me when he placed me in this town and put me in the the middle of this group of girls.

To my tribe...THANK YOU for loving me and my family!  I couldn't live this life without you.

I must add that the amazing friendships I have did not happen overnight.  It takes time to build that trust that all great friendships require.

I must also add that not all my tribe is pictured.  Apparently, I don't take enough pictures.  (I know...shocker! ha!)  The next time I hang out with friends-I'm making us "selfie".  Be prepared!!  

A couple FRIEND posts I've shared in the past...

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  XO

Ahhhh, I love this post! "More dips with cream cheese" made me lol. Cream cheese and/or tacos don't stand a chance around our group! We are all so blessed to have each other! Love you, friend!
