B is for Best Friends

B: Best Friends

"Friends are the family we choose for ourselves" - Edna Buchanan

This week is actually going to be one of the craziest in my life. 

Today, my amazing, beautiful friend Spotto is coming to stay for the night. I feel like I haven't seen her in forever, and we will be indulging in a few glasses of bubbles, and gorging on pizza (these nights have becomes one of our rituals.) Tomorrow afternoon, I'm heading off to the Lush Spa for a massage, with Saloca, for an ultimate girlie afternoon of indulgence. Afterwards - probably in a dream like haze - I am going to treat us to a tapas lunch in town (and possibly a cheeky afternoon beverage.) I'm heading down to my home town on Thursday to see my parents, and then on Saturday, I am whisking myself away with my friend Saunders for a girlie weekend city break in Amsterdam! 

My head is spinning just thinking about how mad this is going to be! But it's so exciting. A whole week where I can catch up with some of my friends....Oooo.....it feels like it could be Christmas!

I really am so, so, so spoiled in my life. I have some of the best friends I could possibly wish for. They have always been there for me - through good times, and really, really rubbish times, and I honestly don't know where U would be without them. 

Friendships that stand the test of time are so rare to find. They need to be kept close and cherished. Every single day. I know that there are times when life takes over a bit too much, and I forget to tell my friends that I am there for them, and that they mean the world to me. It is something that I'm trying my best to work on. 

Friends may not see each other all the time, or talk everyday, but I think that the truest of friendships simply disregard this. True friendships should be able to pick up exactly where you left of, and as if you only saw each other yesterday. 

It is true. We do get caught up on the mad journey that is our life, and we do forget to look around and think about how blessed we are. But we need to take a moment out of each day to take in and appreciate all the amazing people that we have in our lives. 

"Good friends are like stars. You don't always see them, but you know they are always there"

Without them, we wouldn't be the person we are today!

      I never usually have weeks of sheer excitement like this, so I'm relishing every second, and making as many memories as I can.... Making sure my camera and phone are charged at all times for photos and vlog material! :) And don't fear....I shall be having my fill of wine! Hehe
