National Friendship Day

You cannot go through life without a friend. Isn’t it great that we have National Friendship Day (the first Sunday in August) to celebrate? Everyone needs a friend and here are a few reasons you should celebrate your friends on National Friendship Day.

Being Lonely Isn’t Fun

I don’t know about you, but being lonely is not my favorite thing to do. I love to have friends around to talk to and to laugh with and celebrating our friends should be a monthly activity.

Friends Make a Difference

I don’t know about you, but my friends have made all the difference in my life. I’ve been pulled through some of the roughest times in my life by my friends Becky and Amanda. One of the best things about both of them is that I can tell them anything and they would still be my friend, which is how you know when you have found your person.

If you put the time and energy into your friendship that it deserves, then you know that it will last. If you have been friends for more than 7 years, then experts say your friendship has the possibility of lasting forever. History’s Most unlikely Friendship is a story that I can’t wait to see, Victoria & Abdul.

Victoria and Abdul

Victoria & Abdul

If you have followed me for very long you know that I love movies and I watch lots of them. But some of my favorites have came from Focus Features through the past few years. This year is no different and they have some great movies in the works. This fall they will release Victoria & Abdul in select cities on September 22, 2017, then expanding to more theaters on September 29, 2017. The servant becomes a teacher and roles are reversed by an 81 year old Queen who has an unexpected friend.
