3 kinds of friends i'm thankful for

from my party that i decided not to do a post on as it's been over a month. SORRY.

I just have a lot of feels. This might be a sentimental post guys. Sorry in advance.
Anyway, it's the last day of august and a lot of my people have been off to college for weeks. But this past weekend we all got together for the day and I just had too many feels today to not write this post even though I should be doing school, but anyway, let's get this started.
1// friends i can serve with
We woke up at 6:30, drove about an hour, and then served together for about 5 hours on a Saturday morning and it was the funnest Saturday morning I've had in a long time. By far. Granted by 1 o'clock our throats were coated in a layer of dust and our skin was scratched and bruised and we were covered in sweat and dirt and arms were sore from ripping up layers on layers of carpet, but it was just so rewarding and it made me unreasonably happy. 
2// friends i can do anything with
After serving, we crashed at one of our houses and almost fell asleep beside each other before the food was ready. We spent a ridiculous amount of time in the pool making whirlpools and shooting each other with water guns. We played basketball and tag on kids toys literally for hours. We ate popsicles, defied zip line speed limits, and shot each other with Star Wars Lego guns, sprawled out in the middle of the floor. We blasted music on the way home with the windows down waving at each other from the others cars and singing at the top of our lungs as the wind snatched our words away. We finally met at the church before all heading home and ended up staying talking and laughing far louder than acceptable, tears in our eyes, gasping for air, barefoot on the black asphalt as dusk fell slowly, too fast. I think we hugged each other goodbye 3 times when we knew we'd see each other the next morning.
3// friends i can be myself with
The ones you can sing the national anthem with, discuss favorite TV shows, and Tolkien theories with. The ones you can flop down on the couch with in an exhausted, comfortable silence. The ones who make ice breaker games okay. And the ones who make ripping up filthy carpet, prying at door trim, hauling old furniture, and killing several spiders in the process, the highlight of your week. the ones who end up becoming fam. *cue picture riding tricycles and scooters*


Anyway, what kind of friends are you guys thankful for? Or what kinds do you wish you had? And what kind do you want to be? On another note, trying to keep up to schedule on my posts- this school year has me thrown for a loop. Any tips? OH AND PS 50TH POST RIGHT HERE 🎉🎉🎉

  9. Auughhhhh this is so priceless I can't even!! Literally, everything you just described sounds like dream friends to me. I have few friends like this, but they are amazing and beautiful and so much fun to hang out with. "We ate popsicles, defied zip line speed limits, and shot each other with Star Wars Lego guns, sprawled out in the middle of the floor." Literally this sentence should be in the dictionary under the word "Perfection." Great photos, too! oh my gosh.

    love,
