(slightly modified from Leigh Anne's post yesterday to fit my description of my best friend)

My Best Friend...

is my opposite twin
keeps me grounded
wishes we had less miles in between us
loves my family as if it were her own
dances into my day when I need it most
sings my praises 
thinks simplicity is best
really knows my roots
needs to be spoiled 
should be on her way to NY in about 10 days!
can predict my actions, thoughts, and words
likes to keep it real (which makes me laugh)
makes herself at home (something only true friends can do)
always will have my story

(and I'm adding one)
gets me

Today I celebrate Jessica, her birthday, and our 30 years of friendship. 


  1. What a wonderful way to celebrate your friend's birthday! This is my favorite line: "dances into my day when I need it most" Have fun celebrating!

  2. WOW!!! What a beautiful tribute to your friend!! LOVE this!!!!

  3. I would love to do this...maybe for my sister? She's also my opposite twin! A simply significant phrase!

  4. What a wonderful twist and tribute to your "opposite twin." This may be my new go-to next year!

  5. That was a great birthday present! You're friend sounds perfect!

  6. What a beautiful gift for your friend!
