I recently wrote a post about one of my best friends Kelley and how great of a friend she is. I thought I would do a post for all of the friends I'm so thankful to have. Each one can have their own post of course, but it's mostly to highlight how much they mean to me and to let them know I'm so grateful for our wonderful friendship. Friends, good friends at that, are hard to find and hard to stay in touch with today's fast paced life. I want to make sure I take the time to nourish each friendship, show my gratitude and hopefully be half the friend they are to me...
My friend Bailey is truly one of the best friends a girl could ask for. She's one that you know will always be there for you.
I met B in 2006 during all the festivities for Julie's wedding, as B was the Maiden of Honor. B and I went to the same high school, but she was 2 years older than me and we never met. She was however friends with my husband and he always told me about her and how we should meet because we would be great friends. (Little did they know we would become the crafty-crackbooking friends we are!)
Julie's Bachelorette Party
2006 was the year of weddings. We had 3 weddings in common so we were able to get to know one another and spend some time together. After Julie's was another friend of ours in May. Then hers was in the fall of that year.
Later that year Hubby and I moved to P-land, so we were really close to B and her husband. That summer, while planning the wedding, Hubby went to China and a few other places to do some work with his Dad so I was left home alone a lot. She really got me into scrapbooking and helped me find my love for paper, adhesive, stickers and scissors (much to Hubby's dismay I'm sure). We became really close and realized we had a lot in common. There were a lot of delirious Diet Coke filled afternoons, which led to 8+ hours of us scrapbooking, which her husband has deemed "Crackbooking."
I went through some drama with a girl in the wedding party and she ended up dropping out. B stepped up to the plate and became the best Matron of Honor there seriously is on the planet (no kidding she's been the MOH like 5 or 6 times). She helped me keep my head on straight, helped me organize and get everything done. She was my right hand. I don't know how I would have done it without her.
Or sometimes when we don't and I pull you completly out of your comfort zone to ride a crazy roller coaster with me in the dark after drinks and dinner...but hey that's what friends are for right??
B you are a great friend and I'm so lucky to have you as my friend. You mean the world to me and I cherish our friendship more than you know.
