8 Ways You Know You Found Your Future Maid-of-Honor

8 Ways You Know You Found Your Future Maid-of-Honor

You may not even consider that person a friend anymore, more like a long-lost sister you are convinced got separated at birth.

In your life, you have probably had a lot of best friends. It could have been that girl from your neighborhood growing up, the family friend that has been there since the beginning, or someone you just instantly connected with. But, there will always be that one person who exceeds everyone else you come across. You may not even consider that person a friend anymore, more like a long-lost sister you are convinced got separated at birth. Regardless of who it is, there are definitely some signs that point to who that person is in your life.

1. She is the first person you call to give any type of news.

Failed your test? Went on a date with a cute guy? Saw a dog while you were walking home? Big or small, bad or good, you want her to be the first person to know. Since she's your best friend, she'll always have the same reaction as you since you two are basically the same person.

2. You share absolutely everything!!!

No need to go to the mall when you need something, just go straight to your best friends closet! If you don't have something, she most likely will. From clothes to shoes, to beauty products, what's mine is hers.

3. She's already apart of your family (and you're apart of hers).

Oh, how many times I have gone on Snapchat just to see that my family and best friend are hanging out once again without my knowledge. If your best friend is really your best friend, they should feel at home and comfortable with your family (even if you're not there.) You bring her out to every family function and vacation because, without her, your family feels incomplete.

4. You can sit together in complete silence and it's just as fun as a night out.

Sometimes the simple joy of sitting with someone and just enjoying their company is better than a crazy night out. Don't get me wrong, a night out with your girlfriends is definitely needed once in a while but everyone needs a day or two to relax. And once you've found your best friend, you want them there too.

5. You've seen each other at your worst.

What comes along with being so close is that you see each other at every stage in your life. The worst and the best parts are all shared with your best friend. They are there through it all and stick with you even when you feel like you've hit rock bottom. Having a true friend through your worst times is important because that's when you can really tell they are there for you through it all.

6. You've already planned your futures together.

Neighbors in a cute little neighborhood down south, husbands and kids that are best friends, our cute puppies running around the backyard, family dinners every week and family vacations every year. You've most likely spent a lot of time with your best friend and what more do girls like to do than plan? You're lying if you said you've never thought about how you can't wait to live right down the street from each other.

7. They support all of your decisions and don't let you make bad ones.

The best thing about them is that they support you in whatever you want to do...for the most part. A real friend would never let you make bad decisions that they know will only end in a disaster. They want only the absolute best for you so don't be mad or upset if they're just trying to help. Sometimes they know what's best for you before you can figure it out.

8. No matter what, they will always be there for you.

No matter what happens, no matter how badly you might mess up, you know your best friend is going to be there for you. Even in the toughest times you know they'll be there by your side through it all. Having someone through the ups and downs of your life is important. They're so much more than your best friend, they're apart of you.

3 Reasons Why Step Dads Are Super Dads


I often hear a lot of people complaining about their step-parents and wondering why they think that they have any authority over them. Although I know that everyone has different situations, I will be the first to admit that I am beyond blessed to have a step dad. Yep, I said it. My life wouldn't be the same that it is not without him in it. Let me tell you why I think step dads are the greatest things since sliced bread.

1. They will do anything for you, literally.

My stepdad has done any and every thing for me. From when I was little until now. He was and still is my go-to. If I was hungry, he would get me food. If something was broken, he would fix it. If I wanted something, he would normally always find a way to get it. He didn't spoil me (just sometimes), but he would make sure that I was always taken care of.

2. Life lessons.

Yup, the tough one. My stepdad has taught me things that I would have never figured out on my own. He has stood beside me through every mistake. He has been there to pick me up when I am down. My stepdad is like the book of knowledge: crazy hormonal teenage edition. Boy problems? He would probably make me feel better. He just always seemed to know what to say. I think that the most important lesson that I have learned from my stepdad is: to never give up. My stepdad has been through three cycles of leukemia. He is now in remission, yay!! But, I never heard him complain. I never heard him worry and I never saw him feeling sorry for himself. Through you, I found strength.

3. He loved me as his own.

The big one, the one that may seem impossible to some step parents. My stepdad is not actually my stepdad, but rather my dad. I will never have enough words to explain how grateful I am for this man, which is why I am attempting to write this right now. It takes a special kind of human to love another as if they are their own. There had never been times where I didn't think that my dad wouldn't be there for me. It was like I always knew he would be. He introduces me as his daughter, and he is my dad. I wouldn't have it any other way. You were able to show me what family is.

So, dad... thanks. Thanks for being you. Thanks for being awesome. Thanks for being strong. Thanks for loving me. Thanks for loving my mom. Thanks for giving me a wonderful little sister. Thanks for being someone that I can count on. Thanks for being my dad.

I love you!

To All The Ones I've Loved Before: Final Chapter

I put other people before you, which was my greatest mistake.


Dear S,

I want to start this off by telling you how sorry I am for what I put you through over the years.

I put you in some horrible situations with even more horrible people instead of showing you the kindness and love you deserve.

I didn't make time for you. I put you through too much stress and didn't know how to handle you when you crashed, so I left you.

I gravitated towards people I thought I could "fix" instead of bringing people in that would treat me the way I deserve to be treated.

I wish I could tell you how sorry I am in person, but I don't think that could ever happen. I need to show you through my actions.

I should have fed you healthier things. I should have exercised with you more. I should have picked up on the red flags and left immediately instead of pushing them off to the side, hoping they would eventually go away.

They never do. I can guarantee you they won't go away.

I want to believe that people change. I now know that just because they can doesn't mean they will.

When people like D, P, and H treated you horribly and then left, I blamed you when I should have blamed them. No matter what a person is going through, nobody has the right to treat others badly. Nobody.

I still cannot believe what I put you through, especially with H. I should have told you to run as soon as they began to hurt you in new ways.

When I could tell you didn't want to run, I should have dragged you away anyways.

H was the final straw. You are my only focus from now on.

I promise to make more time for you because I now can tell how much I've neglected you this year, and I want to make it up to you.

Let's go for walks when it's nice outside. Let's go to brunch together! I hear there's a great crepe place in City Centre, and I can take you there for your birthday!

We can go shopping at Urban Outfitters together, and I'll let you have anything you want (within reason, of course, a girl is on a budget.)

It'll be just like old times before the others took over.

Things are going to get better, I promise.

I love you more than you will ever know!

Love, Sarah
