I love girls. I do. A lot. In a purely platonic way.
I love when we openly communicate with one another. The way we compliment. The honest and pure affection we often share. The emotion felt words. It’s among my favorite things in this world, relationships with others who share my body parts. Well not mine. But body parts like mine. You get it. I hope.
What I’m getting at is, I adore conversations and loving exchanges with fellow girlies, and I’m blessed with plenty. Within two days this past week, I received three sets of sweet words from three different sources; One a best friend, one a blogger friend and one a sweet lady I had just met at my first 5k. In case you’re wanting examples of how special us ladies and our communication with each other is, here’s three:
- 1. My best friend (She’s the best.) :
I’m so glad she thinks I’m nice/great. Because she is wonderful. Super duper wonderful. It’s been a few days since I’ve seen her and I have the need to find her and hug her right this second.
- 2. My blogger friend lovelylici1986 wrote a paragraph about me and graced me with A Versatile Blogger Award on her blog. Yay! (Go check out the link to her blog because she’s funny and awesome and has great recipes and because I have decided she is my internet lover. Yep.) :
- “Christina at Christina Does It All is too cute!…..She’s super positive and happy and cheery all the time (in her posts). And she’s hilarious. Like, HIGH-freaking-LARIOUS. Her video posts are the best. You get to see all of her personality oozing out of your computer screen and speakers. You convince yourself that you know her. You want to be her friend. She’s one of those people that make you want to pack up and move so it’s possible to hang out at her house and go shopping with her (if you like shopping). Her About Me page is very honest and to the point. She says, “I’m 22. I want to do everything. As you can probably tell by the name of my new blog. I also love people. I would probably love you. Unless you’re a serial killer or something, you asshole.” Yeah. That about sums it up, Christina. Good job!“
- 3. And finally, a short but sweet blog comment from Miss Jessica, who I met at my first 5k on Saturday morning:
“Nice to meet you today. You are full of great energy and spirit. Cheers, Jessica”
See?! Aren’t we girls amazing? I love how we can be childhood friends or blogging buddies or near strangers, and it just doesn’t matter. We love on each other just the same.
In closing, I’d like to say that I was supposed to say 7 random things about me for my Versatile Blogger Award. (This is actually the second time I’ve received it from a blogger buddy, so actually 14.) However, because today is also the day I am supposed to video blog 10 questions on Take Ten Tuesday, I combined the two. I tell you 9 random things about me, and have my girl friend Becca tell one random thing about herself too. After watching the below video where I word vomit a little, you may have a hard time believing I like my girl friends just platonically. But honestly. I do.
