the girls I call sisters.

I have posted about my blogging friends in the past, but what about my real-life friends who I interact with so much, I-could-almost-get-tired-of-seeing-them-but-I-don't-kind-of people?  
>> more than friends. I have known these girls for most of my life {disregard the half year I was away in China, if you want to get technical}. I pretty know where all the silverware is in their house, what their likes and dislikes are, their quirks, the conversation topics that prick their ears, the names of their neighbors, their favorite flavors, etcetera etcetera inside and out. their parents and siblings have been an extension of my own family. growing up next to these two, they've been more than just friends...they've been sisters, and I can honestly say I'm extremely blessed to know them

>> laughter. this is seriously what I love about these girls. they make me laugh not to mention challenge me to make them laugh in return {which doesn't take much, mind you. ;)}. even on days when I'm in a more serious mood, I can't stay that way for long. that's why photoshoots are so difficult with them...we all can't keep a serious face to save our lives. :) 
>> meet "the girls."

a bit quieter from her younger sister, faith is a young lady of many talents of whom I admire greatly. her vision is to someday place her mark upon the filming field and from the snippets of talent she's shown me, I have no doubt she will succeed. when I was younger, faith was always to me "Joanna's older sister" but these past few years, I've been blessed to fondly call her my older sister.

she likes modern. I like vintage. 
she likes movies. I like books. 
she likes sci-fi. I like history. 
she likes jeans. I like skirts. 
she likes small family gatherings. I like groups. 
// we are o p p o s i t e s //


but somehow, it works. she's my best friend and we have been so, ever since we were little girls. she's the girl I can share all of my secrets; the girl who I can literally look at the expression of her face and know what she's thinking; and the girl who I argue with the most. I guess that means, we're sisters.

who are the girls you call "more than friends"?

  1. My best friend Alexis and I have been friends for 6 years, since we met at church. We have some things in common, but a lot of things are different. We're both creative, but I'm shy and she's outgoing. I like small gatherings, she likes both small and ginormous ones. ;) She has a big family, I have a small one...

    But we are the best of friends, running around a theme park holding hands (more recently!),hugging each other til we can't breathe, doing crazy things together (such as running around in a thunderstorm!),crying every time we part... And we've remained loyal to each other for these 6 years, even though we haven't gone to the same church in 4 years and we live 40 minutes away from each other. She is like my twin. I am so blessed to have her as a friend!

    Enjoyed this post, Grace! =)

    Joyfully,
    Jaime Lynn

  3. It was lovely to meet your sisters in Christ, Grace. :)

    I have several and together we form a foursome rivaled by none. There's Nikki, an adorable brunette with a heart of gold and usually the hostess of our gatherings; Marissa, a naturally platinum blonde whose outgoing, flamboyant, and plans to be a fashion designer; and Mia (Michal), the beautiful photographer, who matches me in her love of books, Europe, and beautiful places.

  6. Thank you for sharing some of your "real-life" friends! I love summer because I get to reconnect with my "sisters" at camp. Sister friendships are the best. :)
