My college girlfriends truly hold a special place in my heart, and when it came to their Christmas gifts this year, I knew the perfect little something for the gals who make my life so bright.
All eleven of us met through a student organization at our university and have been close ever since. We have made a tradition of meeting up at least once every summer for our annual Girls Weekend. Never have I laughed until I cried so much as when I'm surrounded by these special ladies. We live all accross the state of Texas, but we're bonded together and have that unending friendship that I treasure so much.
We have a lot of fun, but we also are able to have true heart-to-hearts. One of the things that our sweet friend Christy said to me right before my wedding was to remember that diamonds are created under pressure, and to keep shining whenever the road seems hard. It's become somewhat of a motto for us girls, all with crazy lives, but remembering to remain graceful during tough times.
When the Rihanna song "Diamonds"came out, we were so excited to finally have a theme song. So, I wanted a little reminder for their desks.
Thinking of my girls just warms my heart. Roxy, Amanda, Kristen, Christy, Samantha, Amber, Julia, Amy, Laura, Zebine- You girls make my life sparkle! Cheers to good girlfriends. Keep shining. Galveston, Austin...which city are we gonna take by storm next? :)
