On Friday, Lindsay, who blogs over at Dealing with the "A" Word, hosted an intimate surprise birthday get together for one of our sweetest friends, Jamila. We haven't hung out as a group since I hosted a last minute super bowl party back in February. Needless to say we were long overdue for some card playing, trash talking, belly filling fun and we had all that and more.
I've missed that. Hanging out with friends.
Some of my bestest best friends, that I've known for years, live hours away so we hardly ever see each other. We can barely find time to talk and text regularly, and I miss them dearly.
Friendship is such a delicate thing once you reach adulthood, gain a spouse, possibly add a kid or two and experience life in general. It's so hard to maintain, isn't it?! How do you hold on to them? How do you make sure you stay connected, work through differences, grow together?
I don't really have any answers but I know all sides have to put in the effort. With that said, I need to make sure that I'm doing my part. They say you make time for what's important to you and friendship is definitely one of those things!
