ode to friendship.

I am so looking forward to the holidays and celebrating Christmas with Max and Byron here in Brisbane. I can’t wait for our Christmas get-a-way to Coffs Harbour (more to come on that later) and spending time soaking up the sun and salt water at the beach. It is going to be wonderful!


But if I had to be completely honest, I really can’t wait until January when I get to go back home to be reunited with my closest friends and family. These people (hi people!) have no idea how much it means to me that they are making an effort to see me when I am home. And although some people can’t make it due to other things going on in their lives, I know just being back in the same country as them will make me happy and satisfy that need of mine to be ‘home’.

Friendship is something I have always valued the most. I am one of those people that might not call you every day or email you about every detail that is happening the minute that it happens (well, not before this blog anyway) but I truly believe that I am a good friend and make the effort that is necessary to keep in touch with those who mean the most to me. Sure, maybe a few months will pass without a word, but I find in really great friendships that time doesn’t matter because the very next time you speak it is like no time has ever passed. Not a beat was skipped and everything is as it should be.

On the note of friendship- I am really digging this song “Count on Me” by Bruno Mars. It is all about that friendship and just being there for each other. A little corny, feel good song to get your Monday started (or ended depending on where you live).

“If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea, I'll sail the world to find you
If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can't see, I'll be the light to guide you


Find out what we're made of
When we are called to help our friends in need


You can count on me like 1 2 3, I'll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like 4 3 2 and you'll be there
Cause that's what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah


Wooooh, Wooooh
Yeah Yeah


If you toss and you turn and you just can't fall asleep, I'll sing a song beside you
And if you ever forget how much you really mean to me, every day I will remind you


Ohh, Find out what we're made of
When we are called to help our friends in need


You can count on me like 1 2 3, I'll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like 4 3 2, you'll be there
Cause that's what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah


Wooooh, Wooooh
Yeah Yeah


You'll always have my shoulder when you cry
I'll never let go, never say goodbye


You can count on me like 1 2 3, I'll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like 4 3 2, you'll be there
Cause that's what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah


Wooooh, Wooooh
You can count on me cos' I can count on you"

See you soon friends!!

  1. This song makes me think of the children's book "the Run Away Bunny". It doesn't matter where the bunny goes but that it will always be found and loved! Love and hugs to you sweet one!
