Today my best friend and crafting genius Ghostfaceknitter is celebrating one year sober. To say I am proud doesn’t even cover it. I knew she could do it the moment she text me and told me it was time…and I have be so lucky to be part of this great adventure and huge step she has taken to make her life fantastically breathtakingly wonderful.
My life would be quite lonely without this lady….which is surprising considering we could have been friends a long time ago but were too young, competitive and obviously insane. But thankfully we are in each others lives now, and it is so amazing to have someone aside from the Hubs who gets the sober life. Who cherishes it rather than sees it as a struggle to maintain. Bri and I both didn’t go the AA path…we found once we stopped drinking our lives were so vastly improved we didn’t actually miss drinking. How could we want to go back to where we were when the view from here is so perfect.
This last year has been the stuff of movies for my dearest BriBri….she has kicked toxic people from her life, developed a love of health and caring for her body, started crafting vigorously ( which is leading to her own online shop soon!!) she cooks, bikes, boxes, runs and just does things she loves for herself because she can. She has taken her life back and I am in awe of her strength, determination and mostly the love she has shown herself. Not all of us learn to love ourselves wholly and for who we are. Bri is a source of inspiration to me every single day and keeps my head on straight when I doubt myself. Those who call her friend are blessed beyond measure.
365 days is a long time. And I know the next 365 the next 1000 the next 10,000 will be even more amazing. So join me today and raise a glass of Kombucha (moldy tea which I’m told is delicious) to the amazing, astounding, silly and ridiculous best friend a girl could ask for miss BriBri!
I love you girl. You kick so much butt its crazy.
Year two lets do this!
Now please enjoy some of my favorite pictures from her last year :)
