Things You Can Do With Your Best Friend

4 Things I Do With My Best Friends

Everyone loves their best friends since these are the people who you can go to for anything from cookie dough and a movie or just a good cry because either way we love our best friends.


Best friends are the types of people you can always count on for whatever you need. I have been so blessed in my life to have many people in different stages of my life be my best friend and some stay constant through it all. A best friend allows you to be one hundred percent yourself no matter what that looks like to you.

1. Who doesn't love a good dance party?

When it has been a long day you just got to dance it out even if you are like me and can't dance. Being able to not care what you look like and just dance it out feels so good. Whether it is a good old classic like Living on a Prayer or a newer bop like Thank You Next it is always an amazing memory to make when you dance with a friend.Who else would you rather dance with than your best friend? The best of friends will act a foul and dance along side you all the time!!

2. Making your best friend watch your favorite movie with you over and over and over again.

As my closest friends know Coco holds a special place in my heart. This movie has played over and over at my house since the day it came out. Even when I go to a friend's house they are kind enough to let me watch it for the thousandth time. A real friend will sit through a movie they have watched with you too many times and still laugh , smile , and even shed a tear a time or two.

3. Baking cookies with your best friend is one of the best ways to past time.

As my lifelong gal pals, Emily and Leah know all to well-making cookies is a good old tradition of friendship. There is nothing that makes friends closer than baking cookies or in my case eating most of the cookie dough. Something about the chocolate chip cookies in the oven gives me the happiest feeling but its even better when the warm cookie get out of the oven. These sweet treats can mend friendships, heal old wounds, and give out unconditional laughter to all. Baking cookies is so much more than just that it is how a friendship thrives.

4. Singing karaoke is a staple in friendships.

Singing is the go-to activity for me and my buddies. It could be in the car on the way to get coffee or in the house pretending to put on a mini concert. The go to soundtrack goes from Moana to Don't Stop Believing but whatever song it is we always sing a bit too loud. The performance may not be the best quality musically but you will never have a better time. Just sing your heart out and act like nobody is watching!

To My Best Friend Who Doesn’t Know How Strong She Is

Always better together.

To the one I know I will always have by my side,

First off, thank you. Thanks for dealing with all my shit: my mess, drama, tears, and weirdness. There are so many reasons why you are my best friend; you are funny, amazing, kind and unbelievably supportive. I am beyond lucky to have someone that gets me and has been there with me through the best of times and the worst of times.

You are strong

Life is difficult; I think we have both realized that by now. Whether you believe me or not you are kicking everything being thrown at you in the ass. You have been through everything and more and have always come out of it a stronger, and better person. You are never alone and you know that; we have been there for each other for years and that will never end.

You are special

I have never met anyone with a bigger heart than you; you sympathize with anyone that comes to you for advice. You take things to heart and look at the world in a unique and beautiful way. You appreciate the little things in life, watching Dance movies with your mom, a late night snack at Taco Bell, driving with the top down and dancing like no one is watching.

You are beautiful

You are way more beautiful than you think. You’ve got softness to you that is calming, a smile that is contagious, and a gorgeous girl with so much to offer. You are filled with love and compassion, an amazing writer, dancer and overall an amazing and beautiful person.

You can get through anything

I know you are going through a hard time right now, but look at how far you’ve come. You have gone through way worse and you will get through this just like you have in the past. You will become even more powerful than you already are. You are experienced and that’s part of what makes me love you so much. We have gone through a lot together and we know that whatever life throws at us we can handle it.

I am always here

Your hardship is my hardship, but keep your head up high just like I know you can. You have so much love in your life, from your family, your friends and me. I love you, I have never had a friend like you and I am so grateful every day because of it. You are going to get through this. You are going to get through it because you are, powerful, you are beautiful and you are strong.

~Written with love and appreciation for the most amazing friend I could ever ask for~

An Open Letter To The Friend Who Continues To Save My Life

No one knows me like you do.


From the day we became friends, we have always had nothing but support for one another. Although we have only really been friends for about seven years now, I feel as if you have always been a part of my life. You know me just as well as you know yourself, and I understand you in the same way I understand my own thoughts and feelings.

You have never made me feel pressured, insecure, or unappreciated. The mutual respect we have for one another is unmatched. We can talk to each other about anything; from some of the most trivial topics to entire life philosophies. We have grown and matured together, and I couldn't be more proud of the person you are today.

We don't always agree on everything, and I always appreciate your fresh point of view, but I have never felt more in sync with another person than I do with you. We share the same birth month, the same age, the same home town, the same anxieties, and many of the same attitudes and values.

I feel as if you know exactly when I want to be alone and when I need company. Since we are both introverted, we understand that the other person needs time to recharge. And when I'm sitting alone with nothing to do, I always get a text from you asking to hang out.

In some of my loneliest, most vulnerable moments, you have been there. When I question how many true friends I really have, you are always sure to make your love for me known.

Through high school, and now college, we have experienced so many life-changing events together. Some that have taught us extremely valuable lessons, and others that have shown us incredible pain and how to grow from our lowest moments.

I want to thank you for showing me what life-long friendship looks like. Thank you for always understanding me and never putting too much pressure on me. I see an incredible future for both of us no matter where each of our lives takes us.

We will always share a unique connection that cannot be separated by any distance. But, for now, I'm glad you're only one text or phone call away.
