Sweet Friendship...and the Giveaway Winner!

1 of 8 has been blessed to have had a life-long best friend. These two girls have known each other since birth and decided they were the ultimate buddies when they were seven years old.

And now they are eighteen.

Their friendship has not only endured but flourished over the years and even though we moved away from our shared hometown 4 1/2 years ago, the girls have continued on, cell phones and Facebook and texting over the miles, giggling and being silly and sharing secrets and giving support.

They recently got to celebrate their birthdays together and, as always, it was simply a joy to see them talk, see them finish each other's sentences, see them hug and giggle and discuss.


And I was so touched to watch them, to think of the precious moments of shared childhood they have had. I am so grateful to reflect on the foundation of friendship they have provided each other through their teenagehoods.


And it is incredible to see them become young women.

Silly, giggly, adorable young women.


Young women, nonetheless.
