top 2 tuesday

I love that Taylor is doing a "Things You've Learned" series for the next few Tuesdays... what a fabulous segment for Top 2 Tuesdays! This week is the top 2 things you've learned about friendship...

1) You are never too old for friendship bracelets. Never. There is something so fabulous about the simplicity of those friendships we had when we were in 3rd grade... holding hands on the playground... signing notes as BFF... and sharing half of that little heart charm that either read, "BE FRI" or "ST ENDS." You know... the simple pleasures that expressed our committment to friendship. I think we should bring friendship bracelets back. What do you think?

2) Having one really-amazing-heart-friend is waaaaaaay better than having a thousand kinda-sorta-friends. As we have recently moved and I went through the struggle of friend-dating and finding new girlfriends in a new city... I have definitely learned to cherish my true-heart-friends. That is, these are the girlfriends that know me inside and out... they know my deepest thoughts... they know my hurts and pains... they know my joy and affection... simply, they know my heart.


Head over to Taylor's blog at The Undomestic Momma to link up and share what you've learned about friendship.

Soooo agree about the sentiment about having one over the top amazing too good to be true friend anyday over a bunch of so so friends:) I am triply blessed to have 3 best amazing over the top friends...and count my lucky stars for each of them...a blessing!

I agree with you whole-heartedly on both accounts! And as a former camp counselor I hugely enjoyed the excuse to get back into friendship bracelets way past the socially acceptable age. I like how you say they express(ed) "our commitment to friendship." Because being a heart-friend means so much more than the feeling of liking a person every day.

Julia - I love this post.

Friendship bracelets are awesome. I don't think they ever get old. :)

I'd definitely wear a Tiffany & Co. friendship bracelet.

This was a very heart warming post! I totally agree with your second one though, it's not the number, it's the quality! And great photo to go with it!
