She Was My Friend

How many books are written about break-ups? What about songs or movies? The end of a love affair is big business and is universal. But what about the end of a friendship? How do we break-up with a friend? Sometimes, the evolution of a friendship is organic and easy. We take the hint, phone calls go unanswered and we realize we’re not close anymore and it doesn’t hurt. We let it be. We move on. Lives change, things are fluid. You used to work together and now you don’t. Your kids aren’t in the same class anymore. It’s not a huge issue, it just is. This happens a lot. These changes, they are often not break-ups at all. You might cross paths with this friend again, be it years or even decades later, and pick up right where you left off. Circumstances have brought you together again and it’s pleasant, or even wonderful. READ MORE

    How To Throw A Wedding For Next To Nothing

    They saw each other across a busy room.

    He smiled.

    She dropped her chin, and the corners of her youthful mouth pulled up ever so slightly.

    His uniform made the walk even more enticing.

    She began to part her lips.

    His voice was pleasant.

    Her hair smelled like a spring morning.

    They danced.

    And it was done.

    Now, let’s skip forward a year, and tell the unicorns with rainbow farts to get out of your house, and discuss how the hell to pull together a wedding on a dime, because seriously, unless you’ve just hit the lotto, or have a mother named Bunny with old money- this is going to cost the fortune you do not have.
