Friends are Family

Everyone would probably agree that they have a group of supportive close friends. In the days, months, and years (still hard to type!) since my dad's passing I realized that my group of friends is truly my extended family. I do not know what I would do without them. My friends would tell you that I am not much of a talker. I think that is why blogging is so healing for me. However, they were always there for me. After my dad's death they never asked me what I needed or how I was feeling; they crawled in bed with me, brushed my hair, sent messages on tough days, and most importantly were always by my side without me having to ask them. I want them to know how much I love and appreciate them.

You should also know they are an amazing group of women who inspire me daily. I want to brag about one of them in this post: Katie. One of my best friends Katie has a full time corporate job in New York City. However, one of her true passions is baking. I have clear memories in high school of all her crafting and baking adventures. On black friday, when our group of friends wanted to go shopping for jeans and sweaters, Katie would drag us to AC Moore first to get some baking supplies. Katie has used that passion and crazy talent to start her own business: Goldisweets. You have to check out her website and "like" Goldisweets on Facebook. She made Spiderman cookies for my little brother's birthday and baby shower favors for me, and I will testify that not only do they look amazing they are really delicious. Katie has started the Paleo diet (only a best friend can send you a picture of a chicken enchilada at 7am). I'm thinking her next adventure is gluten free Goldisweets. I would love to be her assistant on this one! Here are just some of her creations:
