Flashback Friday

June’s theme: “The Buddy System” – I want to see pictures of you and your friends or your kids and their friends and then reminisce on why that photo, that person, and/or that time in your life was/is so special.

Meet Farrell and Haley -awful waffle

Two girls I pretty much grew-up with. Not only were they my best friends but I also would have considered them part of my extended  family as well. show skater We all met ice skating and I guess you could say we traveled the world together. I became friends with Farrell when I was around five or six years old and Haley I did not meet until the fourth grade. Unfortunately Farrell and I lost touch over the years but have just recently reconnected through Facebook.

Haley, on the other hand, is my life-long friend. sweden Even though we may go months without talking, we always pick right back up where we left off. We have been through it all together, the good times and the bad – first crushes, first heartbreaks, high school graduations, college graduations, and weddings. my wedding Haley has been an integral part of my life and there is no way I can look back on any season of my life without remembering how she played a part in one way or the other. high school lunch

That is so great that you are still in touch with your childhood friends. Many of mine are lost (not even on Facebook), but I will always have the fun memories of swimming, playing Barbies and playing school teachers. It was fun! :)

Long time friends rock. I have a couple who operate the same way. We can go months without talking, but when we do, it's like no time has passed at all...
