To Know . . To Like . . To Trust



Friendship is defined as a person whom one knows, likes and trusts. I can't imagine any life is fulfilled without having some type of friendship in it. I was inspired to do this post on Tuesday when I read The Pioneer Woman's photo contest on Love. It started looking through my photos to find the perfect one that symbolized love in my life, and it got me thinking about friendship.

Whether a friend is your mom, child, spouse, dog, or a person who was once a stranger, friends enrich our soul and make life worth living.

  15. if this isn't the absolute truth i don't know what is. great pictures to represent all the forms of true friendship too.

    my bff of all time is arriving next week to meet one of my newer ones (met him in line at a sample sale 3 years ago and we have anniversaries and the whole 9 to celebrate our friendship!! bahaha) anyway they will be meeting each other and we're all hanging out for "d-day".

    i can honestly say i've not looked forward to anything this year as much as this. because it will be low maintenance, no expectations, pure joy and there aren't many things in life to say that about. yay!!
