I'm going to start "Paying it Forward"

You would think a weekend in a city like Chicago with 12 crazy girls would lead to trouble. Instead, it offered a great life lesson.

My best friend, Stacy (the one who lives in Nashville), turned 26 last week, so we gathered 12 girls to head "The Windy City" for some shopping and birthday celebration fun. While we were all at dinner Saturday night, we noticed an adorable couple in the corner of the restaurant. Holding hands, laughing, telling stories, the gleam in their eyes made it obvious they were absolutely smitten. It was as though they were in a new relationship but we knew this was not the case because they were both wearing wedding rings... And they were in their early 70s.

Stacy soon excused herself from the table and when she returned, quietly whispered to me that she had paid their bill. The adorable elderly woman made her way over to our table to thank us and exclaimed, "That was nicer than someone giving up their seat on the bus!"

If you want to see 12 girls left speechless, this is the exact way to do it. Saturday night, it was confirmed that my best friend is a kind, thoughtful friend who I can learn great lessons from... One of them being that paying it forward is a great way to thank someone for showing you great things still exist in love and the world.
