Grateful for Friends.

Are y'all ready for things to get all serious and mushy on a Monday morning?
This post today is coming straight from the heart.

So it's mid November and Thanksgiving is truly right around the corner.
For me, this time of year serves as a gentle reminder to stop, and take a moment to express my gratitude for the amazing things in my lives.

Today my heart is overly grateful for my friends.

I desperately need to pause for a moment and give thanks to the amazing women who I am blessed to call my besties.

I need to acknowledge those ladies in my life that continue to lift me up when I fall but also slap some sense into me when I truly need it.

Who know who I really am and still love me.

The same ladies that have held my hand through breakups, stood by side at my wedding, held my hair back during some not so proud moments and laugh with me.

The ones who were my roommates, confidants, life coaches and reality tv watching buddies.

Who never let me doubt myself and truly want what is best for me.

The ones who loved me at my darkest moments and who were so truly proud of me during my wins.

Who sit in my office and listen to me vent when days just seem too overwhelming and who pat me on the back when I deserve it.

These are the ladies who loved me before I knew who I was.

These are the ladies I need to thank.
 And I do, from the very bottom of my heart.

It is not easy to admit, but I do a poor job of keeping up with these amazing women. I let life get in the way too often and neglect the ones that mean the most. Work, sheer laziness, travel are all excuses I lay out as to why I suck so bad at keeping in touch.

Reality is that relationships change as we get older, and I struggle with how to handle that. I find it harder to hold on to what we used to have and transition to what we have now. It does not mean that I love these ladies any less, in fact I love them more. It just means that I am learning how to balance being a wife, friend, professional and myself all at the same time. And that is hard.

Over the last couple of weeks, my friends have just shown me so much love, in so many ways. Whether it be through texts, chats over wine, girls night out, or a much needed phone call. Having these amazing women in my life restores my faith in myself. And that is something you just cannot get from anywhere else. Your kind words, kick in the pants and no judgement has been a life saver for me.

So to my dear sweet friends, you know who you are, I love y'all more than you will ever know and I am truly grateful everyday to have you in my life.

So, now that I got the sappy post out of the way, I have got some pretty things up my sleeve for you this week.

Have a great Monday loves and give send your besties a little love today.
