The New Year. The New You.
I’ve got the words of wisdom to make you the Best Friend everyone dreamt of.
Take note, I am not this kind of friend, but I have the Best-est Best Friend of them all.
And so, I photographed her & her family. (See..that’s how I make up for being the less-than-stellar-best-friend!)
She knows how to rock the world of being a BFF. So, my 3 TIPS comes from observing her.

Tip #1: You must roadtrip.
There is nothing that brings friends closer than endless chatting, unexpected flat tires, and scary fast-food neighborhoods – all of which will probably happen on your roadtrip. (TMI: We also had 2 toddlers with us at the time………..that is REAL-BONDING time!)
Tip #2: Remember the Details.
I struggle with this! Nikki knows my health history, my baptism date, my most-loved teacher and all about my worst breakups. She remembers all the details, and I love her for it.
Tip #3: Bear it all. (NO…do not BARE it all….BEAR it all.)
Dr. G was a communications major in college and was always taught: Self-disclosure brings us closer. True. Be willing to give. Risk bearing your soul. There’s nothing cliche’ about sharing your hopes and dreams. You might just find a buddy willing to cheer you on along the way. Love that!
Love you, Nikki!
