I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Best Friends

Me-My best friend, Aurella is also my sister. We have a love-hate relationship. My former best
friend, Dora is mean. She only comes around when she has nothing better to do. Even then, she  is  not that nice. When I  come to her house to play and another friend  is already there,  she does not  even care.   I  end  up wasting  my  time going there even though she  only lives five  houses  away.

Mom - In TV, movies and books, it seems like people always have the same best friend for a lifetime. In life, it doesn't always work out that way. In my life, for instance, when I was very young I didn't have a best friend. From ages four  to eleven, I lived in one place and had one best friend. When I moved, I had another best friend for a year. When she moved, I didn't have any best friends for a few years.

I had other best friends over the years, but either they moved or I moved or we just drifted a part. Since I've been older, I've had the same best friends. First and foremost, my husband is my best friend, and really what more can you ask for in life then to be married to your best friend. To me one of the greatest pleasures in life is to actually be friends with your spouse. I think the problem with a lot of marriages is the spouses stop being friends or never really were friends to begin with. I always thought the most romantic thing in the world is  when two friends suddenly realize they are in love with each other. I have always thought that even before it happened that way to me in real life. My husband and I have been best friends now for 13 years and married for over 11, but we have known each other even longer.

My other best friend I have known as long as my husband. Even though I am happy to have a spouse who is also my best friend,  it is a good to have another best friend too. My other best friend is the one I can talk to about and participate in things that my husband has no interest in like chick flicks and jewelry parties and stuff. She is the one I can talk to about things that I cannot talk to my husband about because I don't want to put more stress on him or because it is something he would not understand or whatever. I don't expect her to solve my problems just to listen. I do the same for her. Unfortunately, my other best friend has not been in very good health over the past several years, although we are still there for each other to talk to we have not been able to hang out together and go places like we used to. I really miss that.

And that's our view. Tune in again for another Talking Topic

  1. I totally agree that we should be best friends with our spouse. Also, I love movies like "When Harry Met Sally." :) I cry at the end every time. It is nice to have girl friends too. :)
    Very sweet that Melia considers her sister to be her best friend. I love seeing a friendship develop between my boys, even when they don't like to share things. :)
