Hey, y’all! I’m Cambron from Southern Sophisticate and today I’ll be guest posting for Ashton. As we know, she has been a busy bee studying and taking finals. Ashton and I have been keeping each other company on Gchat lately and I’ve really enjoyed our conversations. In honor of a great (newish) friendship, I’ve decided to post on the importance of having girlfriends.
There comes a point in every girl’s life when you realize that as much as you love your Momma and as AMAZING as your boyfriend/fiancee/husband is, you sometimes just need your girlfriends. There are certain topics that are easier to talk about, secrets that are easier to share and an infinite number of memories that are able to be made. You realize that your girlfriends “get it” when your beau doesn’t. They notice the quarter inch you got cut off your hair and the new cardigan your sporting at work. Little things add up to mean a lot. Let’s face it, we all need those tiny recognitions for our self-esteem and who else would see your potential to one day be Mrs. Chuck Bass?
I learned the true value of friendship my last year in college. I was a proud member or Kappa Delta at Western Kentucky (Ashton was active in Chi Omega at USC), and cannot tell you the impact my sisters had on my life. Between my sisters and other life-long friends, I am truly blessed. Each is unique in so many ways and are a continued presence in my daily thoughts. I am extremely thankful for my newly found bloggy friends. The blog community never ceases to amaze me!
I’ve realized that the value of friendship cannot be underestimated or taken for granted. It is important that we take the time to show our friends that we care. Maybe it’s through a blog post, a text message or a big hug. Maybe you see something that reminds you of a friend and you send it to them in the mail. Whatever it may be, take the time to show your girlfriends you care and that you realize they are a MAJOR part of your life. After all, “maybe our girlfriends are our soul mates and guys are just people to have fun with?”
Until next time, may your day be full of magnolias, bourbon and plenty fun with the gals!
