Do you have one of those friends who have been through the good and bad with you and still wants to be your friend? Thanksgiving is a time of reflection for me and every year I like to remember all the special people in my life. 

Just a few weeks back my best friend and college roommate Rebecca came to visit. We have been friends for over 15 years now and I remember back in our college days we would make “break-up” packages for each other. Anytime we would go through a bad breakup, we would buy each other a gift basket of our favorite goodies to cheer each other up. 

Since Rebecca came to visit us, I decided to send her one of these care packages but instead of a break up package, it is a “Extra” special friendship package.


One of our favorite things have always been Extra Gum! We always had each others back when it came to fresh breath so I had to send her 4 packages of her favorite gum.

Next I added a fun magazine, beef jerky, cute hair ties, a pretty wallet and some homemade blondies which is basically white chocolate brownies and they are delicious!

Now that Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away, who are you thankful for this year? Giving a little gift to those you care about can go along way and it can always thank those you love for just being there for you. 

I posted the above picture on Facebook of us during our visit and Rebecca texted me and this was her text:

“True Friends Photoshop each other without even being asked”. 

I laughed so hard about that because she was right! Real friends put each other in the best light…we tell each other when our makeup is exhausted, we laugh until the wee hours of the night, reminisce of our shenanigans through college and help each other whenever we need it and that is what I am thankful for this year…good friends.
