The greatest friends ever!!






I just wanted to give a "shout out" to some of the greatest friends ever! Most of my readers know that I was diagnosed with MS last week. I'm not gonna go into my long sob story b/c I'm passed that. I am going to share with you what kind of support I have backing me as we begin this "journey." I found out the news on Friday morning. By Friday night my friend Jennifer and her husband Zac were at our house with Chili's!! Saturday afternoon my doorbell rang and when I went outside no one was there. I did, however, have beautiful flowers and notes of encouragement on my front porch. I just sat in my front yard and read them all and cried a little. Each of those notes are now on my mirror in my bathroom so I can see them every day. By Sunday I had an Evite from my friends Nikki and Jennifer inviting me to "Andrea Day" this coming Saturday. Andrea day will involve pedicures, lunch, and topped off with talking at Starbucks. (stay tuned for those pictures!) Sunday evening we met friends for snowcones...mmmmm! Last night my girls met me for dinner and gave me the most unbelievable necklace that says "Rockstar" on it. I could go on and on about my friends. I'll just sum it all up with how lucky I feel to have so many girls to love!! Here's to the greatest friends ever!!!
