Best Buds

There are a few things in life that I can’t live without – Lay’s plain potato chips, gummi bears and the company of my friends. The past two weekends I’ve had the pleasure of spending time with my two best friends – TT and AD.

Oftentimes, I don’t even consider T as a friend; she’s more like a sister to me. We bring out the best in each other and she’s always been there to support me no matter what and vice versa. We’re like Oprah and Gayle! I can talk to her about any and every thing as much as I want. When we get together it’s like we’re back in high school again. When I was in Chicago last week, we laughed, reminisced and had a great time. We’ve been best friends for nearly 15 years now and I couldn’t imagine life without her.

The week before I went to Chicago, my other friend, AD, came to visit me here in New York for the first time. She’s my fashionable friend who is just as spoiled as I am. We shopped, laughed and bickered just like we did when I lived in the Windy City. We grow closer each year and I’m so glad she’s a part of my life.

I do have one other best friend, Wanza, but we haven’t seen each other in about a year. We keep in touch via phone and text. Hopefully, I’ll make it to Tampa before the summer is over to hang out with her too!!

Friends definitely make our lives more enjoyable.

Do you have a best friend? If so, what makes him/her special? What is the most important quality a true friend should possess? Please share!
