30 Days of New: Day 9

Nothing is more of an honor and a compliment as a writer than to have a friend ask you to write for them. I’m not talking a term paper, but something personal, like content for a wedding website, like my friend recently asked me to do.  

It is also rather nerve wracking, because you want it to be great, especially something like this that 200+ of their closest family and friends could read.. but such an honor. 

I finally finished it today, and it took everything in my power to not just write “these two are just F*ing great!”, because they are.  I don’t think I have ever laughed so hard as I did during my 48 hours I was with them in Dallas last month.  

Your twenties on up are such a cool time to be a part of major events in friends’ lives, and you really get to see an amazing side of them.  Family, hopes for the future, fears; engagements, showers, weddings, babies, it all has the capacity to pull you closer to people and impact those events in your own life.

My new experience for today was pretty cool.  I got to share my “talent” with someone who I so greatly look up to and love.  She is almost like a big sister to me (something I have never had).  I adore her, admire her, get advice from her, and respect her ( and she always looks so damn great!).

The bride to be on the left and me. It was an awkward group shot at a table, so forgive our poses, but do you see what I mean! Eyebrows to kill for, fantastic hair. If I didn’t love her, I would want her dead 🙂

I still have a run and workout yet to get to tonight, but I will chalk this day up as a success.

Happy Tuesday, kids 🙂

  1. 30 days of something new, very neat idea! Im reading the Happiness Project by Gretchin Rubin with monthly goals. April was parenting month, but since I lack children, I opted for eating healthier. Wishing I had thought of this though! May have to steal your idea for another month this year lol. thanks for following me, looking forward to your future posts

    1. Thank you so much, and please, steal away! It is funny you should mention the Gretchen Rubin book because I just heard about it for the first time yesterday. I am going to have to look it up!
      Thanks for the support, and I am excited to be following you.
