Forever Friends

Jen and I were BFF's in High School. I married young, and she moved to California. She and I, along with another good friend, organized our 25th Class Reunion this year. The time we spent together planning the big event made us realize how much we had missed each other. We are both now kicking ourselves for letting those years slip away, but are thrilled at the possibilities that await!

Your BFF resembles Daryl Hannah, esp. in that last shot.

BFF's are wonderful, and Blog Fest Friends are just as great.

Will your BFF be joining us for the Oyster Festival?

Nothing like a BFF! Neither of you have changed a bit!

Yay! I have a forever friend, too. Her name is Candice. We've known each other since middle school. I went to college at Tennesse while she went to Auburn.

But over the years as our paths recross, we have the wonderful ability to pick up exactly where we left off!

You and Rebbecca, both on the same day. I can't list my best friends, because I have friends I just love so much. Lucy, Debbie, Norma, Jeanine, my other Debbie, Kay, and well do you get it? If your my friend then you are loved, some of these have been around a LONG time.

There is just nothing in the world like an old friend. Good for you guys.
Facebook has reunited me with a few of them.

Isnt' it wonderful how BFF's can be out of our daily life for a bit, but then reappear and just fit right back in!

What wonderful pictures of you two!

Yes I have a BFF and the funny thing is I see as time goes by the more BFFs I have. People who have recently come in to or back into my life that I wonder how I made it without them. But.. there is ONE BFF she is also my sister person... we grew up together from grade school lost touch for a couple of years just about 2. and since then we have been oddly connected for life. I couldn't be me without her. I am so happy you found your friend!

You two look the same as you did 5 yrs ago ....

I have had a BFF for over 35 yrs ... sometimes she's more like my older (cause she's shorter than me by a mile, I find it hard to say 'big' about her) sister ..

No, I am sorry to say that I really don't have a forever friend from a long time ago, just forever friends from recent years.
You are very, very blessed, and I think you know that.
