I have a best friend. In fact I have a lot of best friends. I was never the person who sat in first grade saying Jenny is my first best friend, and Sarah is my second best friend. No, I love everyone equally is as much.

Reason being is that all of my best friends bring out a different side of me. They all understand and have been a part of different aspects of my life that they alone will always know the most about.

So why am I writing this? Well the past year I have been super busy finishing school. I literally have had zero time to spend with any of my friends or family. So the other night I finally had enough time and money to go out for dinner and drinks with one of my best friends! 

He is probably one of my all time favorite people. He is one of those people who will actually listen to what I am saying, call me out when I am being dramatic, and support any and all decisions of mine. Also, offer to give me a piggy back ride in slippery conditions when I am wearing heals :) 

The best part of our friendship, and many other friendships I have, is that months after not seeing each other, we pick up right where we left off. At dinner (and a sangria pitcher and a half in) we both said how much we appreciate our friendship because it didn't matter how long it had been since we had last talked. It was at true friendship. 

It made me thinking of how many other true friendships I have and how truly blessed I am! Not only do I have real human physical friendships, but also blog friendships that I truly treasure! 

God has blessed me with so many wonderful people in my life. I wish I could list them all and write a little exert about them but it would take forever. So here are some pics :)
