Quality over quantity is what matters most to me when it comes to friendships, and 5 years ago I was fortunate enough to make a friend who definitely fits in that category. She is kind, she is compassionate, she is fun, she is non-judgmental. Our husbands are best friends, and we can hang out at any time of day in any type of place and have fun together. She is the friend who took off work the entire week Jaime died in order to just BE THERE for our family for whatever we needed. She is the friend who keeps me sane and happy. 🙂
These are the kind of friends who spend holidays with us whenever we are all in town, and breakfast beers, rafting trips, ski days, and hockey tournaments are just a few of the fun activities we’ve done together over the past half decade.
One month from today, I am throwing this wonderful woman a baby shower. It is the first baby shower I have ever thrown, and I couldn’t imagine throwing it for a more amazing person. I’m not much of a party planner, but for her I am going all out.
You know what’s even neater? Her EDD is Jaime’s birthday, so around June 20th her baby girl will be joining us, and we will get to raise our children together.
I can’t wait!
