Patriotic Sugar Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich ~ Soft Sugar Cookies Stuffed with Vanilla Ice Cream! Super EASY Using Refrigerated Cookie Dough!
True friends are hard to come by. The ones you truly “click” with and you don’t have to censor yourself because you never have to worry about they are thinking in their minds when you tell them something super crazy that probably should not have ever been said, but yet you said it anyways.
Once in a while crazy things happen and one of those friends come along. That moment you meet someone and you may just think, now she’s cool and I want to be her friend.
That exact moment happened to me about four years ago. It was a little tricky though because it was just some random girl that was going to design my wedding invites, whom I didn’t know anything about and lived in a different town. Every time I met with her I always came to the same conclusion, I want to be her friend.
I suppose I could have stalked her, I supposed I could have really tried to be her friend, but I was a little bit apprehensive because I wasn’t real sure on how to go about this business without coming off as a complete freak and scaring her off. So she designed the wedding invites, which were amazing, and we went our separate ways.
Fast forward about to years ago and I was looking for a photographer for my newborn pictures. This said wedding invite designer started dabbling in photography, which she ended up being pretty darn amazing at and we booked a session with her. Once again I thought, she is so cool and someday I’m going to be a real friend. We continued with photo sessions over the next year for Miss K and each time we got a little closer. I ended up asking her to play volleyball with us last fall and from there our “friendship” took off.
Today I am blessed to call Danielle a true friend that I have successfully stalked, befriended and now she will probably run away screaming because I have never really confessed to this story. I’m praying that she doesn’t do this though!
Danielle now blogs too, which could be me dragging her to the “dark side”, over at Krafted Koch. Due to this blogging adventure she’s taken on we’ve really had a chance to truly bond of the craziness of blogging. She is also probably my only “real life” friend that understands my blog prop hoarding slash addiction.
Let’s just say I may, just may have a whole cabinet full of random bowls, plates, napkins, cutting boards, serving platters, paper straws…you get the drift.
This past week I celebrated my birthday and I arrived home to a birthday present on my front porch from Danielle. It was full of new blog props and I’m pretty sure I knew why five years ago I was giving this crazy urge to stalk her! Thank you Danielle for being my sounding board and for letting my stalk you even though you didn’t know it. Thanks for the wonderful gift too! Please still be my friend….
