Where to begin...
I had a best friend for many years, I literally felt like this girl was my other half. We were together everyday, we followed ambulances because we were nosey, we went to bars, we spent time with her son, had our share of boyfriends, but most importantly, we were together daily.
We had a fall out, were apart for 6 years... its still unbelievable how much time passed without us talking. It was one of the hardest losses. I truly never thought we would be friends again.
Her and I have both stayed in the same town, managed to avoid each other for the most part, and were probably even bidding on the same houses while house hunting.
In December, she suffered a tragic loss. A loss that I know too well. I fought with whether or not to reach out. After a week, I just decided I was going to message her. She could take it or leave it.
To my surprise, she responded.
We wrote back and forth for quite awhile that night.
And then we met at her dads house and greeted each other with a hug.
I have my best friend back. We haven't gone a day without talking since reuniting. I miss her and her kids even after a day or two. I cherish my time with her and I literally feel like all is well in the world again.
Thank you for giving us a 2nd chance. xo

Weekend Shenanigans

Happy Monday!
I had quite the relaxing weekend with my husband that I actually feel somewhat ready for the work week.
My gels were looking pretty bad so I treated myself to new ones on Friday.
The husband did a little painting on Saturday, now we just have to pick a primary color for that room. Decisions, Decisions.
We had his folks over on Saturday eve for dinner, his mom gifted us with a hummingbird feeder. I am so excited to hang it!
Yesterday at my gym they had a co ed session to raise money for a local animal shelter. I am all about saving the animals and helping in any way I can! Now to find a way to visit the Gentle Barn in LA.
