My best friend is visiting this weekend, and I cannot WAIT to see her!!
We met freshman year of college in the dorms and have been inseparable ever since — even with going abroad to different countries, even after living in different states for the past eight years since we graduated; we’re still just as close. It’s kind of amazing to me that we met at 18, and now we’re both turning 30 this fall…time flies!
Naturally, I can’t wait to spend quality time together and show her all around where we live. I love having guests, and having moved so far away from both of my “homes” (N.J., where I grew up, and D.C., where I went to school and lived post-grad), it’s not every day we have guests!!
As I’ve gotten older, that line from that campfire song I sang in Girl Scouts has really rung true.
“Make new friends
Keep the old
One is silver and
The other’s gold.”
I’ve been incredibly lucky to find amazing friends and confidantes here in Michigan. I really feel blessed to have such wonderful female friends in my life; I really don’t k now where I’d be without them!
Don’t get me wrong — I love my husband to death, but he’s not a female, and there’s just something special and wonderful about female friendships, don’t cha think?
In case you can’t tell, I’m super-excited to see her, and won’t be blogging again probably until Tuesday! 🙂
Have a safe, happy and healthy weekend!
How about you? How pivotal are your female friendships in your life? How do you stay connected if you live far apart?
