Although today is National Friendship Day, shouldn’t every day be a day where we celebrate our most favorite friends???
One of the things I cherish most in the world is my small circle of girlfriends who I trust with my whole life. We laugh together, we cry together and we rejoice together. This small group of women has grown from a couple friends from high school, a few from college and now a few from the world of motherhood. What is so special to me is that when older friends meet newer friends, they all get together and it makes my heart burst. After all, one of my best friends has been through everything under the sun with me since 1989…and no I don’t want to think about how long ago that was.
Some of my newer friends I have made since moving to Los Angeles a couple years ago feel like I have known them for forever. They are moms who also work in the social space and our kiddos play together. Since we spend so much time together, we have shared so much about our lives with one another and when we get a rare night out…our friendship truly fills my soul.
Now speaking of friendships….a new movie is coming out celebrating my favorite thing…friendship. Victoria & Adbul celebrates the friendship of Queen Victoria and a clerk from India. The film, which is based on a true story, is scheduled to release on September 22nd, the day before my birthday…WOOHOO!
