I'm really happy that I started this Doodley Doo project
it reminds me of the good ol' days of school
and that oh so bothersome thing they referred to as
except this homework I rather like!
I've been swinging quite a bit lately
our land lord left their children's swing set
... so many fond memories I have of playing on swings as a young girl
Swing tag, scrapped knees from jumping into the playground
an entire recess of being "married" with my best friends brother
whe shortly after asked me to be his gf in a note
you know the ones marked yes or no

My best friend and I met at age 6
we were quite a unlikely pair from the start
I was shy and reserved and she was bold and daring
we fought like cats and dogs
it was an on and off again friendship
but the memories we created in our youth
created a sister like bond

In high school our lives were heading in different directions
we grew further apart with each year
but somehow we kept in touch

Today my friend is really struggling
life has not been easy for her
she has gone down a lot of dark paths
yet she is such a beautiful person
and I believe in her so much
I know she has what it takes to make a better life for herself
but I wish I knew how to help her
I sometimes think I should have or could now
somehow be a better friend

More than anything I want her know
how much she has always meant to me
whenever I am around her a part of me comes alive
a silly, carefree girl - a girl I hardly know
I've always been a tightly wound person
but B has always been a source of fun and adventure
My childhood would not have been the same without her
I would escape to be with B as often as I could
to escape the sadness and pain I felt at home
B was never in the mood to talk about "life"
she was about singing and dancing
and honesty I think I would be a real stick in the mud
if B hadn't been there all those years to help me
let things go and just enjoy
being a kid

B - I love you!

I am an incredibly lucky person
to have my very best friend in the whole world
be my wonderful husband
I don't know what I would do without him in my life!!

There are no better quotes in the entire world
that express how my heart truly feels
than those that come from the Hundred Acre Woods

“If you live to be 100,
I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day,
so I never have to live without you.”


“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together..
there is something you must always remember.
you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.
but the most important thing is, even if we're apart..
i'll always be with you.”

Jimbob understands me sometimes better than I understand myself
he accepts my flaws while encouraging me to overcome them
he believe in me, and holds my hand when I'm afraid
he is caring, and kind, and generous
he is wise, and silly, and sometimes wonderfully strange
he is not perfect, but he tries to be
he makes me laugh, and he lets me cry
he is adorable and irritating at the same time
he loves me and know in my heart he always will
he is my best friend and that kind of love
will make it through the hard times
and will be there when things are truly unpleasant
our friendship grows stronger with each year
I hate being parted from him
I am not ME without HIM
and all that might sound like mushy crap
but it's all 100% true - and well
I guess I simply can't describe him and us any other way ^^

Happy Monday Everyone!
If you aren't too busy this next week
maybe you should join me in this weeks
Doodley Doo Challenge?!
