Our celebration of friendship is in full force, and we're here today to talk to the lovely Jill Cornell about her take on the topic. Thankfully, Jill agreed to create an adorable Best Friends layout featuring two of her favorite people, her twins:
JILL: I can clearly remember the friends I made in kindergarten as most of these relationships carried on through my elementary, junior high and high school years. When you grow up together with a group of friends, it's easy to remember time spent in the classroom, on the playground or at each other's houses.
JILL: I have several "groups" of friends - high school friends, college friends, church friends, and mom friends. Over the past year, a group of friends from my small hometown (mostly those of us that now live in a bigger city) get together once a month to go out for dinner and laughs. I absolutely love this time together so much! My stomach will literally ache like I've been doing 100 sit-ups from laughing so much with these girls. We're talking more than 25+ years of friendship. We drifted apart a little bit but always jumped right in where we left off when we would get together. And we have started making these monthly get-togethers a priority so our relationships are better than ever!
JILL: Immediately after my husband and I were chosen by a birth mother for our adoption, our very dear friends from church jumped right in and put together a fundraiser for us. We were able to raise the bulk of what we needed to finalize our adoption expenses. I know we will never forget their gift and sacrifice of time and money so that we might give our twin girls their forever home.
