Special Pouch for Friends & Give Away

Tonight I am packing my bags in preparation to go to Florida to see 5 of my best friends from college. These are my girls! Our friendships might not be what they use to be 5 or 10 years ago. Some friendships have grown closer and others have a little bit of distance between them, but we know that no matter what we will always be there for each other. Now most of us now are married have 1+ kids and hectic busy lives. The last time we were all together was September 2007 for a Bachelorette Party. Now we are all getting together because….we need a girl break! I AM SO EXCITED!!

Thursday-Saturday… just relaxing and enjoying the company of my good friends!

I have been so excited to see my girls I decided to make them something special. It is not much but it is from the heart. I made them each little pouches (from drop cloth) On each pouch I added their initials.


Each pouch is lines with different material, because each one of them are different



Then to make it EXTRA SPECIAL, I added a friendship quote on the inside


I had the best time picking these out. I tried to pick out the perfect quote for each friend. This is my little memento to them in remembrance of our weekend in Florida.
Here are the quotes I used...

"A friend is someone who understands your past,
believes in your future,
and accepts you just the way you are."

"It takes a long time to grow an old friend." - by John Leonard

"The most beautiful discovery true friends make
is that they can grow separately without growing apart."
- Elizabeth Foley

"It is not so much our friends' help that helps us
as the confident knowledge that they will help us. "
– EPICURUS

"Friends are like good wine, we get better with age."

I love these quotes!

Give away time:
In honor of good friends I am offering to you the same pouch for you to give to one of your friends. Just a small memento to tell them you love them! Plus, there will be a special surprise added for you as well!!

I'd like to enter my friend, Jan. She and I have been instant BFFs since we met in college in 1968. We were sorority Big Sis/Little Sis, later roomates. Our lives went their separate ways, but always we were still BFFs. A few years later we found ourselves living only a couple of hours apart and we reconnected as if we'd only been apart for a few days. Our lives have continued to intersect over and over again, but always as if we'd only been apart for a few days. That is what true BFFs are. As life would have it, we split a few thousand miles apart, but her daughter was living close by and she got a new "Mom" in the deal. The threads that connect us all cannot always be defined by DNA, but may be something much deeper.

We just got back from FL and their spat of cold weather! I wish you much warmer temperatures and lots of fun!

I'd love to send my best friend Alicia a pouch with the first quote and an A on it. What I love about her is that we can finish each others sentences and spot unfortunate fashion choices a mile away. One of only has to say orange fuzzy pants and we both know to look!

Hey. I would like to enter my friend Karami. She and I have been best friends since we were 5 years old...so 23 years. We met taking clogging lessons and have been 'true friends' ever since. Our lives went they separate ways after college, but we always connect with a phone call, e-mail or facebook. :) However, she still lives in Boone (my hometown) so I do get to see her often. With that said, I would like to use the quote..."The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart."
- Elizabeth Foley
I would like a "K" on the front.

I would love to win this for my bestie Jen. We met 7 years ago. Within 5 minute of meeting she looked at me and says, “This may sound crazy or like some guy’s pick up line…….but I feel as if we have known each other our entire lives.” It was true-I felt the same way. Although our busy lives don’t allow us much time to meet up, we make time to talk every single day. “Had we never met, I would still be missing you.” Initial J

I would like to enter my friend Julie. I don't see her very much and I don't talk to her very much lately either. But, she works hard at taking care of Anna and Sara. Sara has special medical needs and Julie does an amazing job at being a full-time single parent. I would like the quote to be: "You'll find that life is still worthwhile,If you'll just....
Smile!" with a J on the front.

I love my girl trips and hope you guys have a wonderful, amazing time!!

My best friend is also my sister-in-law! I love her to death! We are so much alike yet we have completely different ideas, which is why our blog we share "works"! Her initial is "B" and I love the quote "A friend is someone who understands your past,
believes in your future,
and accepts you just the way you are."

I just got back from a weekend with my 4 best friends! We have been friends since childhood, and I love them to pieces. I would love to give one of these pouches to one of them, and maybe make one for the rest of them. I would want a J on the front and
"The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart."
