Target sweater (similar!), hat (similar) and boots (love these!); Old Navy jeans; F21 bracelet; Oia Jules necklace.
I felt a whole lot cuter in this outfit before I put it up here. Darn it! That happens to me a lot since I don’t own a full length mirror. Does standing on the side of my tub and looking into by hip length bathroom mirror count? In heels? No, I didn’t think so. Anyway! That is so not the point of this post. I did have one. Really I did.
Friendship! The point of this post is about friendship. Long lasting, soul sister, bff’s forever kind of friendships. You know my husband is in the military and we move often, right? Okay, good. We have moved four times in the past 10 years and over the course of time I have made friends with folks I never would have met before. These people have become my family. People that will watch my children when I have an emergency, or go on the pick up list for schools, people who will drive by potential homes for you 6 states away and take video’s with their cell phones of houses you want to rent. They help with preschool choices, dentists, hairdressers, bags of clothes when you have a new baby, playgroups and wine nights. I’m not sure I could survive these moves without the friends I have met. They brighten my day and give me advice and have made me a better person.
I’ve built these relationships and then we all move and you think that it will not work anymore, but it does! Years can go by. Years! Can I tell you how heartwarming it is to know I have friends all over this country that would be there for me if I needed them? We are all in this together and that makes moving around and uprooting my family worth it. These friends that I have made, spanning years and moves and babies and houses and all the things that come with military life, they have become a support system that I never knew existed.
Need it even be said? I truly believe that the women I have met are some of the strongest women alive. I am proud to call these ladies my friends.
