Make new friends, but keep the old …

I always enjoy making new friends, and my life, for the most part, is an open book. I can’t wait to tell you the latest cute thing my niece told me or show you the pictures of me out on the town from the weekend before. However, I also realize that it’s smart to be…

What is a best friend?

Apparently today is National Best Friends Day. It comes at a time in my life in which friendship and the very meaning of it has been something I’ve questioned. So, what is a best friend?

From training bras to hotel porn to 31

Our friendship was sealed at 8 years old when we decided to spell it out on the Lite Brite: “Amy and Melissa: Best Friends Forever.” We lived across the street so that made this arrangement very convenient, but over the years we’ve ended up an entire 15-minute drive from each other and I’ve realized proximity…
