How has a friend changed you or your perspective on the world this year? Was this change gradual, or a sudden burst? (Author: Martha Mihalick)Dear Friends,
My perspective wasn't changed or altered over the course of the year so much as it was validated by you. Sometimes, there is no better feeling than knowing you're right about someone. I know I have spoken about my wedding countless times now (and this won't be the last, that's for sure) but there is something about planning that sort of event that shows you who you can count on for support. I am blessed beyond belief to have amazing girlfriends in my life, and my wedding day would not have been the same without you standing by me.
I never doubted that you would be there for me on for the wedding. You were the first people I called to talk about Mr LikesIt when we went from friends to more-than, and the first phone calls I made when we got engaged. I could barely wait to ask you to be my bridesmaids. And seeing you in those blue dresses and pearls, well, I was honored, to say the least.
When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.

Everything I knew and believed about you before - beauty, kindness, unwavering support, loyalty, and love - were validated on that day. My beautiful, amazing friends. I am so lucky to have you! Thank you so much for everything you have done for me over the years. You have done nothing but prove me right time and time again.
