My much older friend, Apryl, decided to celebrate her 40th birthday in a very Apryl way....
She hosted a party for her girlfriends at the gym where she teaches pre-school tumbling. You have to know Apryl...she's one of the funniest, quirkiest, most creative, free-spirited people I know, and over the years she has loved me like a true friend. Apryl has been my walking partner at times, accountability partner at times (though I ignored her text when she suggested we be accountable to eachother for everything we eat in a day...), parenting and educational advisor (she's a Montessori teacher), and an inspiration always.
It took a few minutes to let our guards down, but I've gotta say that the Flippin Forty party was a hoot - as she put it, "lots of giggling and jiggling!!
Everyone needs an Apryl in their life!
