Friend Makin' Monday~Best Friend



Today's topic for Friend Makin' Monday is...



Tell us about your BFF...where did you meet, was it BFF at first sight, how long have you been friends, etc. What makes him/her your BFF...what is it about this person that makes him/her so special to you?-
For the rules, if you are new or need to be reminded of them, go here.





My best friend is Gary, my husband.
He is the most amazing husband, best friend, and father. We met 13 years ago when he started working with me. We were great friends for a couple of years. We did everything together, and even vented about the people we were dating at the time...which wasn't each other...we'd always say we were just friends! But really that is the best part...we have always been friends. I married my best friend, and in September we will be married for 9 years.





I still get excited when he comes home from work. The kids faces light up when he walks in the door, but mine does too. We talk about everything and share the same hopes and dreams. He makes me laugh and holds me when I cry; he knows me inside and out! He is an amazing cook and cleans too. When I am tired...he knows and lends a helping hand. We watch football and Nascar together. Maybe one day I will pick up my golf clubs again and we can play together. He goes shopping with me occasionally...I'm not a super big time shopper...he's probably glad about that!





This picture was taken about 4 years ago. We were at Lake Whitney with 5 other couples for our summer getaway. That getaway is coming up in a few weeks. Me and hubby time...woohoo!! I love you Gary more than you will ever know. Thanks for being the most amazing best friend EVER!

Our spouses should be our best friends... we're lucky. There are a lot of sad people out there who do not have what we have. Great post. Big smile on my face from it.

This is very similar to me and Rondell. I still get excited when I see him or when he calls me on the phone. I love that you were friends for a while first. Have fun on your getaway.
