In March, I entered the Korbel Mimosa Girls Getaway contest where I was to submit a “toast” to my girlfriends. The grand prize winner received a VIP trip package to the Korbel Winery with five of her best girlfriends. Eight finalists were chosen by the Korbel team and featured on their Web site. Although I wasn’t selected as the grand prize winner, I was one of the finalists and was awarded with a pretty fabulous Korbel spa robe. Don’t get me wrong, the trip would have been wonderful, but I entered this contest because I wanted to show how much my friendships mean to me. To me I have some of the best friends a girl could ask for and I meant every word to them in my toast. My friend, Meredith, said it best, “Friendships come and go, but good friends, they’re always in your life.” You all know who you are, and I am truly grateful for each and every one of you.
