One of the biggest regrets in my life is that I did not nurture the female friendships I had earlier in my life. I had a couple of friends from school that I was very close to from Jr High into young adulthood. Although we are still in touch and occasionally talk, it is not the same kind of closeness my daughters have with their best friends. Two of my sisters and one of my sisters-in-law have friends that are almost family. I am envious of that. I was too busy being the best wife and mom and employee in those days to understand the importance of outside friendships.
This is my youngest daughter, Allison and her best friend, Laura. They go to different universities but talk to each other just about every day. With cell phones and instant messaging, it is much easier today than it was when I was their age. Click on the page to read the journaling. Do you have a best friend? How long have you known each other?
This paper line is the new Scenic Route Providence. It is so much more feminine than their previous lines. It has the same funky fun colors as before but so much prettier.
(I have corrected this post. I originally said this line was Grafton. I bought that line at the same time. Thank you, Erica, for pointing that out to me.)
I only had five comments yesterday. I'm sure it was because I posted so late. Sorry guys. The winners were #2 Mel and #5 Inara. Please email me with your addy at email@example.com.
