You Capture - Friends

So, friends is the You Capture theme this week. What would I do without my friends? Um, mostly likely be some blithering idiot wandering the streets or highly medicated in a high security sanitarium somewhere. These four brilliant, strong, beautiful women have kept me alive during the darkest times and celebrated the best of times. I love them with all my heart.

Work Friend is the only person who reads faster than I do. We've been re-reading various book series this summer. She's on Harry Potter now. I will so miss having her on the other side of my door this year. I could open that door, and with one look, she'd know. And who else so fully understands the concept (and necessity) of Good Lunch?



I don't get to see or talk to Far Away Friend nearly as much as I'd like to. Mostly owing to the fact she lives clear across the country. So this is our main means of communication. And even that doesn't happen as much as it should. ( We're so stinking busy!) I miss her every day.



My dear Coffee Friend. How many times we have closed down Panera? And, truly, the freaks come out only when we are there together. Because we need more to laugh about. I know it's not nice to laugh about others, but we're pretty sure they're "commenting" on us, too (you know, the freaks over in the booth laughing like fools?), so it all works out.



Best Friend. There isn't enough space to write about her. There are only two months of my life where we did not know each other. And that's only because she wasn't born yet. I don't even want to ponder what life would be like without her. Who else is going to call me at 6:30 in the morning to find out who the Smurf with the tattoo was? (It was Hefty.)


You can see everyone else's friends over at Beth's.

These are fantastic! I love that they all show what makes that friendship special but without the face. Great angle (literally and figuratively!)
