Every summer Amber meets up with her very best friend, Mikaela, in Virginia. We parents make this happen by meeting half-way in Bristol, Tennessee. They have been besties since sixth grade, but Mikaela moved to Virginia after the seventh grade. We promised the girls they would still see each other. Mikaela's extended family still lives in this area, so they see each other a couple times a year, but they get a whole week together in the summer.
I'm happy for them, because they are so good for each other. And as a female, I know how important true girl friends can be.
Here's to all the girlfriends out there who don't see each other as much as they would like!!
*sniff sniff* i miss my best girl!
this is the sweetest post ever. it's so true that when you find a good and true girl friend, it's more important than anything else to keep in touch and see eachother if only for a week a year.
it's so wonderful that both of you (sets of parents) make an equal effort to keep your girls together. totally cute shots too.
I'm still very much in touch with my bestie, we've known each other since we were 12 as well (18yrs now!). I'm so glad the girls still get to spend time together...like you, I think your girlfriends are sooo important :) Beautiful shot of them, they are such sweeties!
This is precious. It's so special that you make this happen for your daughter. This will be some of her fondest memories! I'm speaking from experience...as my parents also drove me 6 hours to meet my best friend for a week at her house and then a week at my house ever single summer. What a treasure!
