Okay I will try not to get too sappy in this post but these girls are the best! (good) girlfriends are reeeeally hard to come by and I am so happy I found such a great group of girls in New York City. We are moving soon and our friend, Mikelle (the beauty in the yellow dress!) moved yesterday (tears!!!) So we had to play dress up and do a best friend shoot before she left. I love that these girls are confident with themselves and build other women up and will drop anything to help someone out. All three of them totally inspire me to be better in different ways, and I love that. They are the best moms and inspire me to be a better mom and they are good wives and good friends and just are the prettiest people inside and out. Really.
This whole social media world is kind of scary. I have seen some of the stuff that goes on in the world’s of little junior high and high school age girls I used to babysit and it makes me sad. It makes me bummed out that there is so much mom shaming, nit picking, and flaw finding on the internet. But really, 99% of what I have seen from my blog has been positive and 99% of you women never fail to leave sweet comments and encouraging remarks and that makes me so happy. I am so glad so many of you are confident with yourselves and don’t feel the need to seek the flaws. If I could go back in time I would definitley take back judgmental comments I have made in college or high school. Friendships are so much better and stronger when you build each other up and are happy for each other’s success instead of finding satisfaction in the other’s shortcomings. I have had both kinds of friendships – especially in high school.. so catty, me included, ugh face palm. (still friends with some of the same girls I was friends with since birth, in Elementary and junior high though! luckily we moved past that haha!) The past couple years I have learned a lot about friendships and am a big believer that you should only keep people in your life who are uplifting. My thoughts are allll over the place in this post and right now but I just love meeting inspiring and confident women. I love these three girls and I have loved getting to interact with a lot of you beautiful women too! xoxoxo
