Love for the Important Ones

Happy Monday.

I wanted to take a minute to recognize my friends and family and how great they are. It's not every day that you can tell people how wonderful they are. Until I went to college, I had one or two friends that were girls. It is a long story of why, and it is something I don't want to get into now, but lets just say it has to deal with this evil bitch I was friends with and she turned on me and tried to turn the like entire high school on me and basically, it made my high school experience a shit load of fun. Not. I finished high school in 3 years and peaced out to college.

I think it's important to have great friends that you can trust in your life. It has been a roller coaster ride with the girls and guys I have had in my life and I can say as a fact that where I am at right now in my life, I have never had better friends than I have right now. There are actually MANY female friends that I have --which if you knew me in high school, you would never have thought that to be possible. Then there was the girls I met in college, who I don't actually have that many friends left from college either --it was more of the friends from work and from other people that I met who are still standing tall!

Again in college I met a girl who tried to take over my life and make me believe she was my best friend, where I found out she would try to steal every guy I dated/hooked up with. We were really close, a threesome of friends me T and C. It was awesome while it lasted --but T ruined it for everyone. Maybe one day I will get into the long ass story. But the moral of the story is that I am not friends with T anymore, but C is my best friend still. And its for the better. Removing a drama filled evil cheating back stabber liar from your life is always a positive sign. We actually have a huge conversation going on 20 something bloggers website, check it out! http://20somethings.ning.com/forum/topics/would-you-choose-your-best


So after the mess of people I have associated with in my life, I am glad to have the greatest girl friends that I have left.

(me and my girls surrounding me on my 24th bday)


Here is a good quote for them "Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart." ~Eleanor Roosevelt

Another one of my best friends is my mother. She has been there through EVERYTHING. Small, large, crazy, insane; you name it. When some people weren't there for me, she was. Every break up, every let down, basically everything. I hope to be that person for my child when I have one.


The last great person is the boyfriend. Where would I be without him? My best friend, my lover, and my travel partner. I am truly be myself and he loves me for who I am. We have had a great time in the past three years. Many ups and many downs, but over all, its been fun. It's pretty amazing when you meet someone who goes so well with you, its scary! People I have dated in the past just weren't like that--just one other one,,, but thats was a long time ago -- others were just assholes and cheaters. I wouldn't take it back though, those experiences made me who I am today.

This is us in Costa Rica at Volcan Poas. LOL we are so very cool...



Hey maybe one day we will even get married....

and have a house, 4 dogs, some cats, and 2 kids.. hahah oh and a garden and a pool.... Not asking too much right?!



Basically, I am dedicating my love to my friends, family and the boyfriend. Love them all so much... couldn't have made it where I am today without them.

Viva Girls Night bitches!

it's true. it's very hard to find best friends that you can trust with all your heart & drunken self. you know, the type who will look after you, not steal your boyfriend or even hook up with your exes. i thank God every day that I have a number of those kind of friends. and it seems that you have some too :) btw, you & the boyfriend look so cute together. let us know if wedding bell is ringing, i'd love to hear more about that :) (i'm very sappy when it comes to good love story LOL)

It is so true... its hard to find out that there are people like that exist in your life when you thought they were different.
I tend to always find out the hard way!

This is really nice. Too often we take the people in our lives for granted, and I think it's important that we tell them just how much they mean to us. Now I'm all warm and fuzzy inside.

Your monday is better then mine. lol.

It's great to know that your surrounded by great people! =)

I've recently started to cut some ends loose because the friendship was a little one sided.

High-school drama is always fun isn't it? lol
I don't miss it one bit!

Enjoy your Friends, your family and ur sweetie.
You deserve it! :)

You & the BF are so cute! You guys just look like you're meant to be! Too cute!
I remember what my dad always said to me about HS girls. "The ones that think they're the shit now won't amount to shit in the end." Basically I lived by that in HS when I felt excluded from certain 'cliques'. I am lucky to still have a core group of girls from HS in which we've grown even closer over the past eleven years post-HS.
Awesome post to make us all appreciative of our besties! :)

I loved reading that post it was so sweet. And you're so right, we all take people for granted and it's nice to step back and appreciate those who make an impact.
Thanks so much for sharing x
