This week I dedicate my Friendship Friday to my BFF from Illinois, Nancy. We have shared so much in the years that we have been friends. Happy times, sad times, good times, bad times, crazy times...she has always been there for me. She is such a beautiful person inside and out, and I am blessed to call her my friend.
*I was a bridesmaid in her wedding 2 weeks ago and she was a bridesmaid in mine almost two years ago. "Always a bridesmaid, never a bride." Nancy, now they can't say that about EITHER one of us.
*She hosted a Bachelorette Party for me, and didn't skimp on all the fun goodies. Say hello to Juan Carlos for me:)
*We've had some really fun trips- Las Vegas, Hilton Head, Canoe trips and her trips to visit me in South Carolina. I'm sure there are more that I am forgetting.
*Her baby (her dog Bailey) used to live with me, and still calls me "Momma Leigh Ann".
*We always have fun shopping together. I talk her into buying clothes that actually fit her body! Who knew she had such a body and such a tiny waist! We need to burn all of her t-shirts. Hehe!
*We have spent hours talking about boys and life. We have definitely been each other's saviors in our hard times.
*I miss living in the same town as her. I can remember calling her late at night to invite her over for a chat, movie, munchies or a late night trip to Wal-mart.
*Since Nancy doesn't enjoy cooking, I used to cook for her all of the time. I would often call her before she went to work to send her with a goody bag full of food. She would then get to work and call me so we could talk for hours. That was our thing!
*She was there for me when my brother died. She made a special trip to come to the visitation with (her now husband) Brad, and she gave a Memorial in my brother's name.
*She has always showered me with thoughtful gifts and cards for birthdays, Christmas or just because.
We have laughed and cried and grown up together. I am looking forward to the next phase of our lives together. Hopefully, our children will grow up together and share the special bond that we share with each other. I only wish that we lived closer. I miss you and I love you, Nanc!!!
