Sometimes you need to send a little love to one of your best girls. In this case, Abbie! A care package requires a bit of thought, but as I wondering what might make Abbie smile, I just couldn't get 6th grade off my mind. Of course, a bff package inspired by middle school nostalgia! So, I dug out my embroidery floss and Sharpies and got down to business.
|just can't shake those friendship bracelets|
|is there anything more quintessentially bff than lip smackers?|
|doodled notebook--if only I had a trapper|
|you can't have friendship without kitten stickers|
|of course, there must be mixtapes!|
|and a paper fortune teller|
|and acorn necklaces for the lady friends|
not exactly the middle school bff heart necklace, but I did make it.
Abbie and I didn't know each other in 6th grade, but if we had it's quite possible we would've been bff.
Let's see. We would've hung out on the far side of the soccer field, by the chain-link fence that separated the field from the highway. And we would've had secret pacts and chain letters, rolled our eyes in mutual disdain during Sex Ed, read all Christopher Pike's books (especially Whisper of Death), painted our toenails with white-out and put our hair up with banana clips, watched Labyrinth and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and Cujo, become blood sisters with safety pins, and bought slap bracelets from vending machines. Those would've been good times. Oh man, I'm missing Miss Abbie tonight.
