It's days like today that remind me how lucky I am to have amazing friends. We may be spread around the country - Washington DC, Phoenix, Minneapolis, Charlotte, and everywhere in between, but that doesn't mean we aren't just as good of friends as we ever were.

They are the friends I can call and talk to about my family, my work, my dating life, my doctor's appointments, and every single other thing under the sun and they listen. They ask me questions, they commiserate with me, and then I do the same for them. I feel better every time I talk to one of them, I feel rejuvenated, I feel empowered. I am so proud of them, so thankful for them, so excited for all of the exciting adventures we are all embarking on. Even though it feels like we're doing it by ourselves, it's not the case. My best friends are nothing but a phone call or a plane ride away, and if I needed any one of them, they'd be here with me the second I asked. Because that's what best friends do.

If you have friends like these, you know what I'm talking about. You know that smile you can't wipe off your face when you've hung up the phone, or when you're about to get off an airplane and see them. If you don't have friends like these, find them. Be that kind of friend, and it will be returned to you ten-fold. Friendship is the single most important thing to me; being a good friend, having good friends. .I hope that never changes. 


  1. I know exactly what you mean :) Most of my closest friends are spread all over the country...I hate it and love it at the same time. Don't get to see them as often as I'd like, but it gives me an excuse to travel and visit them!

  2. I love this and miss you.
