These days there is a day for pretty much anything. #NationalDonutDay was last week, I’m not a big fan of donuts, but can confirm that this “holiday” was celebrated throughout my firm! Personally, I’m a big fan of #NationalWineDay, or as I more typically refer to it, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday! There’s even #NationalTalkLikeAPirateDay, which we also happen to celebrate in my office….don’t ask! It’s not that interesting of a story!
But today, June 8, 2017, is #NationalBestFriendDay. I’m one of those lucky girls that has more than one bestie. Each one of my best friends is “best” for a different reason. There’s the best friend who challenges me to push myself both physically and mentally. She inspires me in motherhood, as she has two of her own and is a fabulous mama! Her shoulder to cry on and sage advice during our journey to conceiving Little Miss is more appreciated than she will ever know. There’s the bestie who is also my #cousincub aka the sister I never had. Separated by 10 years, growing up we weren’t the closest, but as we’ve gotten older, the age gap has vanished and I’d go to the end of the earth for this girl. She’s the one person who almost got an invite to the delivery room when Juliet was born…but for the fact that I was afraid she would be so horrified by the experience that she would decide to never have a baby of her own! I have a few other besties sprinkled in, my #brickhouse girls, I’ve got nothing but love for ya! And then there’s the bestie of all besties…my bobbsey twin. My ride or die. The bestie who would literally do ANYTHING for me. I can’t hold a candle to the level of friendship that this bestie brings to my life on a daily basis. She has a hollow leg for wine, shares my love of barre classes, is a total foodie, and is ALWAYS down for a trip to ANYWHERE I wanna go: Ireland, Napa, Paris, Napa, London, Napa, Seattle, oh, and did I mention, NAPA?!?!?!
You all know who you are, so today, #NationalBestFriendDay, I celebrate you, my best friends! Cheers, bitches!
