We are a mother and daughter who both love to write. We decided to start this blog so we could spend time together doing something
we both love and share it with you. We specialize in reviewing fun places to go and fun things to do, but we talk a little bit about everything.
We would love to hear your views too.

Best Friends

 Me-My  best  friend   Aurella   is  also  my  sister. We  have  a  love  hate  relationship. My  old  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  what  I  say.   I  end  up  wasting  my  time  even  though  she  lives  five  houses  away  from  my  own  house.

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 4 to 11, 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 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. :)
