Here’s to Friends ~ and New York.



I came across this image on Pinterest a while ago now. It is one of those rare photos that seems to haunt me and makes me look at it often. It’s funny how a picture can tell a thousand words and I’m sure an image like this means different things to vastly different people.

To me it tells a story of a close friendship, two girls who can take on a big city. A story where they can dream, share, inspire and laugh not only with but also at each other.

It reminds me of a very dear girlfriend of mine ~ who shall remain nameless but she will know who she is as she reads this post. Let me tell you a story of our friendship.

We met working in retail many years ago now. Right from day one she was so welcoming and chatted away like we had already known each other for a lifetime. I have always admired her skill in making conversation and the way she makes everyone she meets welcome to her world.

We fast became friends and not long after she became engaged to what I know is her soul mate, he is the man she will be with for the rest of her days, that she asked me to be her bridesmaid. I was surprised  -  she seemed to have so many beautiful and popular friends. Secretly I was chuffed… because she chose me.

Over the years we have had our differences of opinion and one big ole falling out where we didn’t speak for a good couple of years. But even a silly fight can’t keep good friends apart… we got back into the groove pretty quick – like nothing ever happened… Now that’s real friendship isn’t it? And now, even though we live miles apart there is no distance. And I love her cause she introduced me to Gossip Girl!     ;)

This picture reminds me of our friendship because she loves New York.
Two girls, close as can be … endless possibilities.
Cherish the simple things
