As a kid, I was only in Girl Scouts one or two years. I don't remember much about it but I do remember the retro uniform and beanie cap.
As an adult, I have loved being a troop leader for my daughter and all of the sweet little girls in our troop.
It has been fun to live vicariously through these girls all of the fun things Girl Scouts have the opportunity to do. Crafts, sports, making s'mores, adventure, friendships (young and old), serving our community - I enjoy it all.
One of the lines of the Girl Scout law is to be a sister to every Girl Scout.

I have some sisters outside of Girl Scouts - my girlfriends!
One such friend was not in Girl Scouts but was in 4H when she was a little girl.
Her sons are now in 4H too.
Are you seeing a pattern here?
Life always seems to come full circle.
Andrea and I are definitely sisters of the heart.
We love our family, anything handmade, antiques and the well worn.
What a surprise I received from her!
Vintage Girl Scout buttons!
When I opened her card and saw these sweet buttons my heart skipped a beat.
How precious and thoughtful - she is such dear friend, a sister of the heart.
It is funny how time and traditions bring people together.
It makes me realize how much we might all have in common and may not know it.
Sending you xo's my sisters! ~ Heidi
