through thick and thin

You know those people in your life that you know are going to be with you through it all ... graduation, bad fashion choices, your first waxing, break ups, college, marriage ... through thick and thin?

I'm blessed to have a lot of those kinds of people in my life and they bless me every once in a while when I'm reminded of how kind and loving they are to me, in big and little ways.

I'm going to a wedding at the end of June and I was thinking about wearing the same dress that I wore to the Brooklyn wedding a couple weeks ago, but then I was told it was black tie optional, which I guess means something a little fancier then what I was wearing. I am flipping out a little. I can't really find anything appropriate! And while I may be confident in my every day clothing choices, the fancy events always intimidate me.

I found this dress that I thought would work and asked my online forum of friends what they thought. Later that day, I get an email from Susan ... one of my dearest and most faithful friends. Check it out! She built me an outfit around the dress I was considering!!!!

I WAS SO TOUCHED! I know it's a silly thing to be touched by but this is so reminiscent of the kinds of little things that Susan does for me that makes me think ... man, I'm lucky to have a friend like her.

Thanks lady. You da bomb.


  1. My pleasure! and you've returned the favor many fact, today, I'm wearing my favorite green boyfriend cardigan generously given to me by my good friend Jeannie!

  2. Remember we used to solve these problems in our cubicle on a daily basis?? I miss those days, my love! I could never forget the time you helped me find my blue dress at Bebe (aka "the one"). That was friend-tastic!!!
