Depth of Friendship

I have people I consider true friends that have been in my life for twenty years, ten years, six years, one year, three months, and some I have never even met.  These I have been friends with for a short period of time have the same depth of friendship that I have with those that have been with me since preschool. I have been lucky in life to be surrounded with amazing friends.  I consider my closest of friends more than just friends.  They are honestly my family.

For some of you that I have not met, I still feel las though we share a wonderful friendship.  I definitely feel this way about one of my best bloggy friends, Cambron. {also mentioned here}  She and I chat daily about everything.  We share the same love for bourbon, all things southern, and Charleston, SC.  She does not live here, but her boyfriend is from here.  And, they will be visiting very soon, so I will get to share a cocktail with her!

When I returned home Friday evening, there was a pretty pink box waiting for me on my doorstep.  It was from Cambron.  First of all, only in the world of blogging would it be acceptable to send a gift/care package to a complete stranger.  Cambron is what we in the south call "'dem good people."  I was so excited to see what she had sent me.  It was the ultimate law exam care package.

What does a law student covenant more than her caffeine?  Her highlighters and colored tabs!  You highlight and tab everything in law school.  Rule books and outlines are tabbed everywhere.  I will sometimes go as far as to color-code my highlighting.  Please note the 10 packets of Emergen-C.  All of those will be used!  No time to get sick or feel sluggish.  Chocolate rabbits? Yes, please!

You will be receiving a formal thank you in the mail, soon. 

Also, another big THANK YOU to all of you and your sweet words of encouragement and support.  It really means a lot to me.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend with family and friends.
Can y'all believe it is the last week of April!?  My word, where is the year going?



  1. I couldn't agree more about friendship...we like to call our closest friend "framily," because they really do become family. Good luck with exams...I'm currently taking a quick break from a paper that's due tomorrow!

  2. What a nice surprise to get in the mail! She sounds like good people. I agree, I think friendships can be deep no matter how long you've known the person. Those friends are probably the ones that were always destined to be in your heart.

  3. I'm still in undergrad, but I totally understand your love for colored tabs and highlighters! I'm pretty much obsessed :)


Thanks for stopping by! I love all your comments, they honestly make my day.
