People say best friends are hard to find -- that's because the best is already mine!

I have been blessed with the best friends in the entire world! They are all very different from each other but I love each of them! This past August, 3 of these friends that are closest to me moved away to become teachers...all different sides of the country (South Carolina, Missouri and California) I was so happy that they were moving on and following God's leading in their lives but I was so sad to see them go. You see, we had never been separated up until that point. Our friendship started in the church nursery and continued thru elemetary thru high school and then thru college! Two of them are home for Christmas and I am soo happy to have them back in person again!! :) That is the reason for the timing of this post! life long best friend! We have so many memories together and she has been there for me through so much! Michelle is my Maid of Honor!! I miss her so much! She is a 3rd and 4th grade teacher in California! I am so excited b/c after Julian and I get married we will be living in the same area again! She is my constant friend! I love her so much!

Tab and Nicole
These two beautiful girls are also my bridesmaids! I love these girls so much! We also grew up together and had ups and downs throughout elementary and high school but during the last couple of years we became super close and today they are two of the people that I cherish the most! Tab is teaching 1st and 2nd grade in South Carolina and Nicole is a preschool teacher here in our home town!

Julie, she is my long distance friend...:) Almost our entire friendship has been long distance! We met in 9th grade at a Youth Conference...she was from Baltimore, MD and I was from Chesterton, IN.....Since 9th grade we have only seen each other 5 times! The longest being 7 days! We kept in contact through all the drama of high school and then her two years of college (she went to school in Cali) and then 2 years ago, she got married (which btw is the last time I saw her) and since then has moved to Oregon... but our friendship continues! I am so thankful for her! She has been a faithful friend! A friend that I know will always be there! And by the way...looks like we will be living closer to each other than we ever have before, after I get married! She will only be 4 hours away from me!!! I'm so happy about that! I can't wait to see her again and I am so happy that she will be standing up on the platform with me on my wedding day!

This is my Liz twin! She just such a super sweet friend! She is the kind of friend that is always thinking of other people and would do anything to see the ones she loves happy! I love this about her! She moved to MO this fall and became a Kindergarden teacher! She is one of the most creative people I know! I love her to pieces! She is going to make an awesome wife/mom/homemaker...


This is my next door neighbor/"big sister"! Becca and I have always been good friends...started about the time I was born...when I came home from the hospital and we became next door neighbors! We are both the only girls in our families so we always referred to each other as "sisters"! She is 5 years older than me so all growing up Becca is the one that I looked up to! She will also be standing as a bridesmaid...she will always mean a lot to matter where life takes us! She'll always be my one and only "big sister"!

So, basically the overall point of this post is to say that I believe I have the BEST friends in the world~ There are more, of course, but these are the people that I consider my BEST friends!

So...just wondering how do I rate. I mean I consider myself a pretty good friend, how many other friends no you have that are on a fist name basis with yor parents. I think I should at least be able to serve the cake and punch or something, just think about it... you can let me know later. ;)
