National Best Friend Day…It’s A Real Thing!


What’s that saying? “Your vibe attracts your tribe.” June 8 was National Best Friend Day.
I spent the day vibing with “My Tribe”.
Nikki and Teresa (left and right above) are my two besties that I’ve been friends with it seems like forever. One for over 20 years and the other for over 30 years!
We have gone through so many of life’s milestone moments together. Graduations, engagements, marriages, having children, first homes and so much more!
We’ve had each other’s backs through so many good times; and through life’s tough times when being there for one another is everything and all that matters.
With our busy lives, careers and families, every moment that we can steal away and spend together these days we cherish. These girls are more than just my tribe.

They’re my soul sisters.

A Reason, A Season Or A Lifetime

We had the best time taking these pictures. A professional shoot together that was probably long overdue!
All our time together is a best time and never enough time! We don’t take for granted that we are so blessed to have a lifetime friendship like this.
It’s been said that people enter your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
Having encountered the people for a reason, and the seasonal ones, these two girls are my lifetime friends. In knowing them, my life has forever been changed for the best because of their constant love, loyalty, support, and understanding.

Meet The Besties!

There’s no feeling like being excited to share something of great value and worth with someone else.
This is how I feel about introducing my besties to you!
Although you’re not meeting them in the literal sense, I thought that we would share with you my favorite recipes from their kitchens to yours. A piece of them that you can become acquainted with and keep.
Like one of them always says, “Some people go a whole lifetime and never have what we do.”
I’m honored to share a piece of what we have with you today, and may it fill your belly and your soul the way that our frendship has filled me up for so many years together.
When you find your tribe, hold onto them and love them hard!

That Kind of Tribe

The ones that even if you don’t see them face to face as often as you’d like, you see them heart to heart.
