It’s my BFF’s Birthday y’all!!


Here’s what a best friend does for you:

Keeps your secrets; makes you laugh; lends you money; lets you spend their birthday on their couch watching Princess Diana’s funeral; holds your hand on bumpy plane rides; fakes fights with you for silly photos along cliff edges; finds you apartments to sublet; holds you as you sob when boys break your heart.

Talks you through your marriage breaking up while 8 months pregnant; drives around in the middle of the night in the woods and turns the car off to get scared with you; gifts you with pies and money for iPhones; supports your obsessive personality no matter how ridiculous you’re being.

Looks at dating sites with you to weed out the good from the bad; asks you to be their maid of honor and then makes sure their hairdresser makes you look really good; gives you good advice; gives you good medical advice; encourages your writing; finds you coveted door hangers and nesting dolls.

Always makes time for you even though they are busy with a demanding career and a beautiful baby and a good marriage and cute doggies and lots of family and in-laws.

Rachel has been my best friend pretty much my entire life. She’s awesome in so many ways – I’ve only listed (some) of the ones that pertain to me ;-p But I wish for everyone to have a best friend as incredible, loving, loyal and supportive as she is.

  3. Thank you to all of you, and thank you especially to you Amy — You are the best of friends in return. I need to start my own blog to list all the ways, but you are amazing and have a way of making people feel special (not “special”). I count myself lucky to have had you as a friend all these years, and I’m looking forward to all the adventures ahead! xoxo

  4. Awww what a heart-warming post! Happy Birthday Rachael

  5. This is EXACTLY what friends are about. Supporting you, fueling your obsessions, making you laugh until you cry, wiping your tears when you’re sad, and never ever making you doubt their friendship.
